BOOKTOPIA

Booktopia is a series of weekend reader/author retreats hosted by Michael Kindness and Ann Kingman of the Books on the Nightstand podcast. Booktopia was envisioned as a way for listeners of Books on the NIghtstand to gather together and share their love of books and reading. It has become something much, much more. Booktopia is a place where real connections happen: reader to author, author to author, and person to person. Now in its fourth year, Booktopia has been the starting point for many lifelong friendships, and our Booktopia authors have found lifelong fans. We’ve brought together readers from across the United States, and from Australia, Canada, Germany and Switzerland.

Broadway’s international hit musical is based on Puccini’s Madame Butterfly. The story takes place during the upheaval of war in Viet Nam in the late 1960s and early 1970s and follows the lives of American GI—Chris, and the young, innocent, Vietnamese girl—Kim, during the turmoil and aftermath of this tumultuous era. The musical–by the creators of last season’s Les Miserables, won several Tony and Oliver Awards including two for its stars Lea Salonga and Jonathan Pryce. See this epic saga unfold on our stage this summer.

Farm to Table: American Silver

HANK – elegant ewer with inscription

Farm to Table: American Silver highlights different but inter-connected uses of American silver – agricultural awards and table service – as they progressed over the last 150 years. Farm to Table and associated programs will enable visitors to experience the farms and tables of the region as they reflect the stylistic changes of each era. Farm to Table brings new meaning to the “art of eating,” treating audiences to an intimate experience of handmade American silver objects celebrating our food and farms and appearing on our tables through modern times.

The exhibition will feature a variety of forms and objects representative of agricultural presentation silver and fine table settings, including silverware, hollowware and serving pieces. For example, the agricultural silver component will feature medals, trophies and engraved hollowware. Silverware for the table will span from Francis I to contemporary designs. Table settings and serving pieces will exemplify the Arts and Crafts Movement, Art Deco, Mid-Century Modern and Contemporary Craft styles.
