Mathew Duman highlights a selection of gargoyles & grotesques found throughout the buildings of Yale University's campus in New Haven, Ct at the Woodbury Public Library on Thursday, May 24 at 7:00 pm. Using original photographs from his book, "An Education in the Grotesque", he explores the artistic, historic, architectural & even humorous significance of these decorative sculptures & their role in communicating the identity of Yale University as a place of learning & enlightenment.
Mathew Duman grew up in Bethany, Ct & works as a photographer & graphic designer at the Knights of Columbus in New Haven. He attended the gargoyle-free campus of Central Connecticut State University but while studying abroad, became fascinated with the architectural detail of the cathedrals of Britain. Mathew has since taken photographic trips to Italy, Africa, Australia & New Zealand.

Because neither side in the battle for Israel-Palestine is going to disappear, ending the struggle for Israel-Palestine would require Israeli and Palestinian concessions. When we think about resolving the conflict the same old options are on the table, variants of the one-state and two-state solution. This talk will consider the core questions: What are the differences between the variants? What are the pros and cons for each option? What obstacles stand in the way of realizing a resolution?  This is the topic Associate Professor Jeremy Pressman will be addressing at the Woodbury Senior/Community Center on May 17 at 7:00 p.m.  The talk, open to all, culminates this year's Great Decisions Discussion program, sponsored by the Jill Smith Fund at the Woodbury Library.  Dr. Pressman's talk is sponsored by funding from the Martin DeSomma Memorial given to the Woodbury Public Library last year.  Dr. DeSomma had an avid interest in current events.  To register for this program, please visit www.woodburylibraryct.org or call the library at 203-263-3502 for more information.
