Larry Lederman, landscape photographer and member of NYBG's Board of Advisors, has spent years walking the garden grounds to observe and photograph trees and vistas in all seasons and at all times of day. Lush images featuring their diversity and visual impact are on view in the gallery space. The New York Botanical Garden is home to more than 30,000 trees, some in woodland, some in groves, and some standing in solitary majesty. Magnificent Trees is lavishly illustrated with photographs by Larry Lederman and accompanied by descriptions by Todd A. Forrest, Arthur Ross vice president for horticulture and living collections at the garden. An authority on the diverse species present across the 250-acre landscape, Forrest details their fascinating histories -- from their vital role in Native American life and culture to their function in neutral territory during the Revolutionary War. Lederman captures their grandeur in hundreds of stunning images and portrays their diversity with photographs that reveal the trees in myriad fascinating perspectives: in landscape views that convey the garden's genius loci; portraits illustrating the architecture and profound visual impact of select trees; remarkable details of flowers, fruit, leaves, and bark; and impressionistic images, abstract in character yet beautiful in composition.

That was before class divisions, gangs, dirty politics and risque entertainment sealed the Bowery's fate as the city's most historically nefarious vice district.

'The Art of Losing:' a discussion with author Priscilla Gilman - Harrison Public Library
April 14, 2013 - Harrison

Harrison Public Library presents "The Art of Losing," a discussion with acclaimed author Priscilla Gilman, on Sunday, April 14 at 2pm. This event is made possible through the "Conversations Bureau," a new program of the New York Council for the Humanities. "Conversation Bureau" discussions are made possible with the support of the National Endowment for the Humanities. "The art of losing isn't hard to master," Elizabeth Bishop writes in the first line of "One Art," her poem about loss, time, illness and aging, death, grief, and the redemptive powers of memory and art. Participants will discuss Bishop's poem as an act of nostalgia, elegy, memory, and memorialization, a meditation on the nature of romantic love and its loss via break-up, divorce, or death, an exploration of loss and mourning, a gesture of healing and acceptance, a reflection on mortality, and an affirmation of the value of poetry. How do we confront and cope with loss, whether it be the seemingly mundane misplacing of keys or the waste of precious time, the loss of a job, a home, a time in one's life, good health, a beloved person, a dream or ideal? Bishop's poem will spark a profound and spirited conversation about topics that matter most. Priscilla Gilman grew up in New York City and received her BA and PhD in English and American literature from Yale University. She is a former professor of English literature at both Yale and Vassar College. Gilman writes regularly for publications including The Daily Beast, New York Times, and Huffington Post, and speaks frequently at schools, conferences, and organizations about parenting, education, and the arts. She lives in New York City with her family. Her book, "The Anti-Romantic Child" was nominated for a Books for a Better Life Award for Best First Book. This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Harrison Public Library. Space is limited and sign up is required. Please call the Library at 914-835-0324 or see to sign up.
