Please See Us by Caitlin Mullen

Zoom

Summer has come to Atlantic City but the boardwalk is empty of tourists, the casino lights have dimmed, and two Jane Does are laid out in the marshland behind the Sunset Motel, just west of town. Only one person even knows they’re there. Meanwhile, Clara, a young boardwalk psychic, struggles to attract clients for the tarot readings that pay her rent. When she begins to experience very real and disturbing visions, she suspects they could be related to the recent cases of women gone missing in town. When Clara meets Lily, an ex-Soho art gallery girl who is working at a desolate casino spa and reeling from a personal tragedy, she thinks Lily may be able to help her. But Lily has her own demons to face. If they can put the pieces together in time, they may save another lost girl—so long as their efforts don’t attract perilous attention first. Can they break the ill-fated cycle, or will they join the other victims? Evocative, eerie, and compelling, Please See Us is a fast-paced psychological thriller that explores the intersection of womanhood, power, and violence.  Open to all. Registration is required. You will receive a Zoom link by email the day before the meeting.

Great Book Discussions with Tom: An Enemy of the People, by Henrik Ibsen (1828-1906)

Monday, June 28  •  7:00 pm • Register online for HMA302-Z
Registration is required to receive Zoom sign-in via email.


An Enemy of the People, by Henrik Ibsen (1828-1906)
Zoom

Ibsen was a great dramatic innovator for the manner in which he took up serious societal concerns in his plays. The protagonist of An Enemy of the People is Dr. Thomas Stockmann, a physician who “blows the whistle” when a tannery opens upstream from the spa resort in which he and his family live and contaminates the waters. For his actions a mob condemns him as an “enemy of the people.” Ibsen’s drama foreshadowed the many dilemmas of economic growth and environmental concerns that have continued into our own day.
