Watkinson School presents...Freshly Squeezed with Colin McEnroe: 2019-2020 Series
Last season's "Freshly Squeezed with Colin McEnroe," hosted at Watkinson School, was a complete sell out! Join us for the eighth season, as parents, community leaders, educators -everyone who cares about the challenges we're facing these days gathers for the opportunity to think and talk together at these nimble, personal, and participatory forums.
For those who enjoy wisdom with wit, substance with style, and the opportunity to be part of the conversation, "Freshly Squeezed with Colin McEnroe" has become a must-go series!
You can purchase all three of your tickets to 2019-2020 Freshly Squeezed series here.
October 2, 2019 * The Normalization of Hate.
"Hate" is the imprecise word we use to describe a group of ideas that have moved out of the shadows of American public life and into its center ring. At the core of these movements sits one common idea: that all people are not equal. We'll discuss the challenges this moment poses to educators, politicians, business leaders and journalists.
January 29, 2020 * Laura Nyro was the Emily Dickinson of American Pop Music.
Her most famous compositions - "Stoned Soul Picnic," "Stoney End," "When I Die," "Wedding Bell Blues," "Eli's Coming" - are jewels of mainstream music, and her covers of songs like "Jimmy Mack" and "Gonna Take a Miracle" are legendary. But she was uncomfortable under the spotlight and withdrew from it to become the Belle of Danbury. This will be a night of singing, reflecting and celebrating.
April 1, 2020 * 100 (Across) is the New 80 (Down).
Growing old gracefully used to be a gift. Now it feels like an assignment, as we hit the tai chi classes and crossword puzzles to keep our bodies and minds going. A frank and funny description about living longer and, ideally, better.
