TALK ON U.S.-CHINA RELATIONSLenox, 4 p.m.
|SUNDAY - NOVEMBER 24, 2019|
The Lenox Library Distinguished Lecture Series will host Francis Moriarty presenting a talk titled "US-China Relations: What Choices Do We Have?" at the library. Moriarty’s career, which began in Pittsfield at the sports desk of the Berkshire Eagle, would take him to San Francisco, Beirut and Berlin, but his longest stint was in Hong Kong. His first day on the job was April 15, 1989, the day senior mainland official Hu Yaobang died. Hu’s death helped spark the pro-democracy demonstrations that would lead to the Tiananmen massacre. Moriarty covered the demonstrations in Hong Kong, where tens of thousands of people protested outside the then-offices of the Xinhua News Agency in solidarity with the demonstrators in Beijing.

AUTHOR TALK | ILAN STAVANSAmherst, 2:00 PM
|SUNDAY - DECEMBER 08, 2019|
“The Seventh Heaven” Internationally renowned essayist and cultural commentator Ilan Stavans spent five years traveling from across a dozen countries in Latin America, in search of what defines the Jewish communities in the region, whose roots date back to Christopher Columbus's arrival. In the tradition of V.S. Naipaul's explorations of India, the Caribbean, and the Arab World, he came back with an extraordinarily vivid travelogue. Stavans talks to families of the desaparecidos in Buenos Aires, to "Indian Jews," and to people affiliated with neo-Nazi groups in Patagonia. He also visits Spain to understand the long-term effects of the Inquisition, the American Southwest habitat of "secret Jews," and Israel, where immigrants from Latin America have reshaped the Jewish state.Tickets: Suggested donation: $5 Ticket link: https://secure2.convio.net/nybc/site/ConsProfileUser?NEXTURL=http%3A%2F%2Fsupport.yiddishbookcenter.org%2Fsite%2FCalendar%2F1768245156%3Fview%3DDetail%26amp%3Bid%3D7951
