Doing Ethics: Lessons from Life And Art with Diane Rubino
Most of us witness moral courage only occasionally. So we may have only the barest outlines of what it looks and sounds like to confront a wrongdoer. The opportunities to go further—to actually practice taking a stand—are virtually nonexistent. Lacking experience, we may avoid seizing the chance to act when we see things we believe are wrong. But it’s not only the seeing, it’s the actual doing of ethics—scripting and rehearsing a moral stand—that’s central to this session on Thursday June 29 at 7 PM.

The Taming of the Shrew
Thursday June 29 at 6:30 PM, the Hudson Shakespeare Company returns to the Hoboken Public Library and takes the Bard’s story of the “war of the sexes” and updates the action to 1960s Italy. It’s Felini’s La Dolce Vita with a “Man Men” flair.
