The Book Club meets the third Tuesday each month, 7:00 - 8:30 pm. Now meeting at the College Park Community Library, 9704 Rhode Island Ave, College Park, MD 20740, in the basement of the Nazarene Church.

Our theme is literary non-fiction by women, though we have been known to read a novel or something by a man. Our meetings are informal and you are welcome even if you did not finish the book!

Some of our favorite books have included: Alex and Me, by Irene Pepperberg (a scientist writes about the amazing parrot she worked with for 28 years); Reading Lolita in Tehran, by Azar Nafisi (an Iranian professor of English Literature writes about her experience of the Revolution and her belief in the importance of English literature); Fun Home, by Alison Bechdel (an illustrated autobiography, comic book style); Persepolis, by Marjane Satrapi (another "graphic novel" by another Iranian woman). We sometimes go on outings as well: including trips to see movies including "Julie and Julia" and "Hidden Figures".

If you are interested, please rsvp by emailing info@cpae.org; our schedule is subject to change.

This reading is sponsored by College Park Arts Exchange, a grassroots arts non-profit supported in part by the City of College Park.
Your generous donations will be passed along to the actors.

This play examines who Queen Elizabeth I was and what was important to her, as she thinks about her life and reign. We see both the young Elizabeth and the one at the end of her reign, often on stage together as Elizabeth considers religion, courtships, and the many threats to her throughout her life including those from Mary Stuart, Spain, and the earl of Essex. Other characters include the ghost of her mother, Anne Boleyn, Robert Dudley, one man she truly cared about, a series of her ladies in waiting, and the French ambassador.

Carole Levin is Willa Cather Professor of History at the University of Nebraska. She has held fellowships at the Folger Shakespeare Library, the Newberry Library in Chicago, and was a Fulbright scholar at the University of York. She has written and edited many books, including The Heart and Stomach of a King: Elizabeth I and the Politics of Sex and Power. Recently she published a fantasy children’s book, The Secret History of How England & Elizabeth I Defeated the Spanish Armada.

Join us at the Old Parish House on Monday, March 12, 2018, at 7:30 pm for a wonderful evening of Celtic fiddle music from Canadian musician, Andrea Beaton.

Those of you who enjoyed Celtic fiddlers Panache Quartet a few years ago won’t want to miss the return of Andrea Beaton to the OPH. Andrea comes from a long line of musicians (the popular fiddler Natalie MacMaster is her cousin); her music is at once her own and deeply rooted in the Cape Breton tradition. Her passion for the fiddle and step dancing always delights her audiences.

On this visit, Andrea will perform with Troy MacGillivray who’s been impressing audiences with his fiddle, piano and step dancing skills for many years. His roots-centered approach to his music has the power to inspire all audiences.

Together the two accomplished artists offer a taste of Nova Scotia’s best traditional music. Troy and Andrea will captivate and enchant us with contemporary tunes fused with the music of their Highland ancestry. Join us for what’s certain to be an evening filled with feet tapping and smiles.

Your generous donations will help CPAE support the artists.
