5:00 SOCIAL

5:15 LITERATURE – BOOK DISCUSSION

The Zookeeper’s Wife by Diane Ackerman

The time is 1939 and the place is Poland. The Warsaw Zoo flourishes under the stewardship and care of the Zabinskis. When their country is invaded by Nazis, they are forced to report to the Reich’s newly appointed chief zoologist. The Zabinskis covertly begin working with the Resistance, putting into action plans to save the lives of over 300 Polish Jews. This powerful thriller would be a great novel— except that it is a true story!

6:00 DINNER

7:15 THE ARTS

Speaker: Flutist, Paula Gudmundson, Assistant Professor of Flute,
University of Minnesota Duluth

Gudmundson was awarded a Community Partnership Grant in 2013-14 from the Minnesota State Arts Board to record works by two Argentinian artists. She traveled to Argentina in search of neglected early 20th century music and has recorded La Flauta of Buenos Aires featuring works for flute by Amancio Alcorta. Recently, she has studied Scandinavian women composers. Her presentation today will feature the history and performance of some of their works.
