• ‘Anne Frank’ at the Museum of Tolerance

    I first bought “The Diary of Anne Frank” for a dime at a church rummage sale in North Hampton, New Hampshire.

  • Theater: Death in the Vatican revisited

  • Songfest at the Colburn School

    The Colburn School is a world-class performing arts school located downtown on Grand Avenue, kitty-corner from Disney Hall. I can’t say the number of times I have trudged or driven there to drink from the cornucopia of delights, mostly free, that spill from its doors. Faculty recitals, student recitals, Sunday afternoon chamber music in Zipper Hall. Lectures on ballet. An Adult Studies division.

  • Soul Stirring: African-American Self-Taught Artists from the South

    We should all know about the California African-American Museum of Art.
