Adult Education: Unsung Heroes
Union Hall (702 Union St., Brooklyn)
A Brooklyn-based monthly event series where various speakers present brief, multimedia lectures on a shared theme. Presented by Stay Free! and hosted by Charles Star.
GEOFF KLOCK, “Unsung Superhero”
Artistic, scientific, and sexual success: any of them would be pretty impressive. Klock remembers William Moulton Marston, a guy who achieved all three.
LAURA SILVER AND SHAWN SHAFNER, “We Applaud You”
Everyone (well, just about) deserves a standing ovation. That’s why Silver and Shafner have been clapping for Monday morning commuters by the 7th Ave subway station. Is it performance art? A social movement? Plain ol’ neighborliness? A report from the front lines.
JIM HANAS, “Somewhere West of Laramie”
Forget Don Draper. Hanas reads from the ads of Ned Jordan, the greatest adman who ever (actually) lived.
