Dylan Thomas 100 FESTIVAL Wales Celebrates its Rock Star Poet During His Centenary Year
Dylan Thomas 100 – continues in Wales with news of additional multi-disciplinary events being added to the festival’s creative mix.

An inspiration for poet-musicians like Bob Dylan and John Lennon and actors like Richard Burton, Dylan Thomas was a bona-fide rock-star before there was such a thing – sometimes playing to crowds of 1,000 – especially in the USA. Welsh actor Matthew Rhys (The Americans; Brothers and Sisters) who has channeled the poet (in the film Edge of Love) hopes you'll join the festivities, “We've been celebrating Dylan Thomas in Wales for decades now. Come to Wales this year and celebrate his centenary.”

Here is a sampling of the inspired programs on tap during the second half of 2014:

June 28–Dec 20: Dylan – National Library of Wales
A combination of dance, poetry and the visual arts will provide a fresh take on Dylan’s life and work. The event will enliven several of the Library’s gallery spaces in Aberystwyth and will include displays of personal items, providing a unique view of Dylan’s world.

June 28: Dylanathon – 5 Cwmdonkin Drive, Swansea
Using a camera, smartphone or tablet, entrants are asked to use innovation over picture quality to interpret Dylan-related themes throughout the day.

July 19: Dylan Thomas’ Swansea Hollywood: The Mummy and the Old Dark Horse
This Dylan odyssey visits three of Dylan’s childhood cinemas in Swansea with a talk in a secret space at a fourth. The evening culminates with Andrew Davies introducing a screening of his new film, “A Poet in New York,” starring Tom Hollander, followed by a Q&A session.

Aug-Sept: Bedazzled - A Welshman in New York
Celebrating Dylan’s special relationship with the USA, especially New York, a series of live events will “re-imagine” Dylan’s favorite watering hole – New York’s White Horse Tavern. Audiences will be transported to the bohemian world of 1950’s Greenwich Village where Dylan held court.

Sept 5–Dec 24: Manuscripts Exhibition – Dylan Thomas Centre, Swansea
Infrequently exhibited items on loan from the University of Buffalo include poems, lists of rhyming words and black and white photographs.

Oct 26-Oct 27: The Dylathon – The Swansea Grand Theatre
The Wales Theatre Company stages a non-stop 36 hour marathon reading of Dylan’s work. Performers include Sir Derek Jacobi, Jonathan Pryce, and many more acclaimed personalities together with schools, bands and choirs numbering in the hundreds.

Oct 27-Nov 9: Dylan Thomas Festival – Dylan Thomas Centre, Swansea
This 17th annual eclectic celebration will feature talks, exhibitions, workshops and performances.

Dylan Thomas 100 and www.dylanthomas100.org highlights Welsh locations closely associated with the poet-like his birthplace, Swansea, his old writing shed, and his home -The Boathouse - in the town of Laugharne. And the program ranges across all artistic disciplines – from literature, to opera, theatre and painting. From high profile exhibits and live performances to community-based educational programs.

Business and Tourism Minister Edwina Hart said: “Dylan Thomas is one of the literary giants of the last century.” … “These events will help contribute to a fitting legacy for Dylan’s life and work, but I also hope they will resurrect a passion for literature and inspire people of all ages to connect more actively with our rich cultural heritage. In the spirit of Dylan, it is an opportunity to showcase Wales as a land of artistic excellence to an international audience and raise further the iconic status of this great literary figure.”

The Drew University Library “Out of the Vault” Series
On Tuesdays this fall, the Wilson Reading Room in the United Methodist Archive and History Center will remain open until 9 p.m. These additional hours allow researchers to use Special Collections and Archives materials into the evening and at times that might fit better into their schedules.

As part of this late evening initiative, staff from the Department of Special Collections and University Archives will host several hands-on show and tell workshops on the first Tuesday of every month. Each workshop will be held from 7 to 8 p.m. in the Rowe Reading Room of the Center.

These interactive sessions will introduce people to materials from various Drew collections and allow them to hold a piece of history in their hands. The workshops are free and open to the Drew community and to the general public.

SCHEDULE:

September 2nd
Incunabula, or, Books in the Cradle

Cassie Brand

The term “incunabula” refers to books printed before 1501, literally translating from Latin to mean “in the cradle.” With 29 books in the incunabula collection, Drew University Special Collections boasts great examples of early printed books. With beautiful handmade paper, intricate type fonts, and hand-colored illustrations, these printed volumes take us back to a time when hand-crafted books were prized possessions. Come touch and feel the hand-laid paper, knock on the thick wood boards of the binding, and marvel at the brilliant colors of gold illumination.


October 7th
What They Wrote: Historical Manuscripts

Zannah Bingham Buck

Have you ever wondered what sort of letters Susan B. Anthony, Jefferson Davis, Albert Einstein, or Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote? Or wondered what Louisa May Alcott’s, George Eliot’s, or Elizabeth Gaskell’s handwriting looked like? Drew University’s collection of Historical Manuscripts is full of handwritten documents from over 900 different historical figures, all of which are available for use by researchers or by anyone who is simply curious. To get a taste of the richness of this collection, we will discuss what a manuscript is, how manuscripts end up in libraries and archives, and their modern-day value.


November 4th
Day in the Life of Governor Kean

David Reagles

If you are a Drewid, you have undoubtedly noticed an uncommon prevalence of “Kean” on our beautiful campus. Whether you have studied in the Kean Reading Room, perused the Kean Gallery, or enjoyed a production in the Kean Theater, you have benefited from his legacy.

Thomas H. Kean served as governor of New Jersey, was appointed chairman of the 9/11 Commission, and led Drew University as its 10th president. We will explore a “day in the life of Kean” and examine the exciting collection of his papers that now enriches Drew University’s archives.


December 2nd
Tiny Treasures: Small Books in the Drew Library Special Collections

Brian Shetler

Small volumes are certainly interesting for their Lilliputian dimensions, but also for their purposes: as traveling companions for the literate and religious alike. These miniature volumes were portable, shareable, and easy to hide away if needed. This workshop will feature details about a few of these books and their history. It will provide an opportunity to interact with a selection of “tiny” books that are to be found in Rare Books, McClintock, Hymn Books, and other collections.

Bowdoin Museum of Art Free Screening of Herb & Dorothy 50X50
Following the film, famed art collector Dorothy Vogel, featured in the film together with her husband Herb, and Megumi Sasaki, producer and director of the film, will engage in a public question and answer discussion. The audience is invited to a reception at the Museum of Art immediately after the screening to meet and speak with Dorothy Vogel and Megumi Sasaki and to view the exhibition of a selection of works given to the Bowdoin College Museum of Art by Herb and Dorothy Vogel.

Developed as the follow-up film to Megumi Sasaki’s award-winning documentary Herb & Dorothy (2008) that moved millions of art-lovers worldwide, Herb & Dorothy 50X50 captures the last chapter of the Vogel’s extraordinary life and their gift to the nation, raising various questions on art, and what it takes to support art in today’s society. A ‘road movie’ through the art world, the film takes the audience on a journey across the US to eleven recipient museums, from Honolulu to Fargo, meeting curators and visitors, and introduces famous (often controversial) artists, as well as unknown favorites of Herb and Dorothy.

The free screening of Herb & Dorothy 50X50 is presented in conjunction with the exhibition “It’s What You Do With What You View”: Selections from the Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art on view through September 14 at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art. The installation celebrates the generous donation of well over 300 works from the celebrated collection of Dorothy and Herbert Vogel by Dorothy Vogel to the Museum in December 2013. The show reflects the evolving history of minimal, post-minimal, and conceptual art practice, and features the work of numerous iconic artists including Robert Barry, Dan Graham, Edda Renouf, Julian Schnabel, Pat Steir, Richard Tuttle, and Dorothy and Herbert Vogel themselves.

Kevin Birmingham: The Most Dangerous Book: The Battle for James Joyce's Ulysses
For more than a decade, the book that literary critics now consider the most important novel in the English language was illegal to own, sell, advertise, or purchase in the United States. James Joyce’s big blue book, Ulysses, ushered in the modernist era and changed the novel for all time. But the genius of Ulysses was also its danger: it omitted absolutely nothing. All of the minutiae of Leopold Bloom’s day, including its unspeakable details, unfold with careful precision in its pages. The New York Society for the Suppression of Vice immediately banned the novel as “obscene, lewd, and lascivious.” Joyce, along with some of the most important publishers and writers of his era, had to fight for years to win freedom to publish. The Most Dangerous Book tells the remarkable story of Ulysses, from the first stirrings of Joyce’s inspiration in 1904 to its landmark federal obscenity trial in 1933.

Literary historian Kevin Birmingham follows Joyce’s years as a young writer, his feverish work on his literary masterpiece, and his ardent love affair with Nora Barnacle, the model for Molly Bloom. Joyce and Nora socialized with literary greats like Ezra Pound, Ernest Hemingway, T. S. Eliot, and Sylvia Beach. Their support helped Joyce fight an array of antivice crusaders while his book was disguised and smuggled, pirated and burned around the world. The long struggle for publication added to the growing pressure of Joyce’s deteriorating eyesight, finances, and home life.

Birmingham’s archival work brings to light new information about both Joyce and the story surrounding Ulysses. Written for ardent Joyceans as well as novices who want to get to the heart of the greatest novel of the twentieth century, The Most Dangerous Book is an empathetic, gripping examination of how the world came to say yes to Ulysses.

6:00pm to 7:00pm

Members fee ($10) and Non-members fee ($25)
