My Sister in This House Pay-what-You-can Preview

WingSpan_My_Sister_in_this_House_2__t520

8pm @ The Bath House Cultural Center

My Sister in This House, which often echoes Jean Genet’s The Maids, is based on an actual incident that took place in the French town of Le Mans, France in the early 1930s. It centers on the lives of Christine and Lea, two servant sisters attached to the Danzard household. The Danzards’, mother and daughter, are models of petit bourgeois idleness and severity. While suffocating under the weight of the Danzards’ authority and the rigid lines of class distinction, Christine and Lea have only each other to cling to. This pressure cooker atmosphere – part psychological study and part thriller – results in a haunting and stunning emotional explosion.

4pm @ The Art Institute of Dallas

This month we’re having a special presentation by the wonderful and talented DB Ferguson. Our very own DFWWP member is the creator and webmaster of the NoFactZone, the #1 Stephen Colbert Fan Site on Planet Earth.

DB Ferguson, creator/webmaster of NoFactZone.net, the largest Stephen Colbert fan community online, will talk about building your readers into a strong and enthusiastic community. From finding those readers during the first fledgling days of your WordPress blog, to engaging the passion of your most loyal readers, DB will show you tips and tricks gleaned straight from the heart of the Colbert Nation.

We’ll be in a smaller classroom at The Art Institute of Dallas this month, so our RSVPs are limited to members only. If you have a friend who wants to attend, please have them join the meetup, it’s quick and easy. How to find us: “We will be on the 2nd Floor. Rooms 216-217.”

Don’t forget our special post-meetup happy hour at Sherlock’s Pub. This unofficial “networking” event was especially popular in August.

Everyday Practice of Science: Where Intuition and Passion Meet Objectivity and Logic -Dallas Philosopher’s Forum

7:30pm @ Chic from Barcelona – $4

Fred Grinnell, Ph.D., Professor of Cell Biology and Founder of the Program in Ethics and Science, UT Southwestern Medical Center. Author of The Scientific Attitude.

Scientific facts often are so complicated that only experts can appreciate the details. However, the underlying practice that gives rise to such facts should be understandable by everyone interested in science. In my new book Everyday Practice of Science, I offer a plain-talk account and demystification of science as world view and life’s work. I describe how researchers bring their own interests and passions to their work. The interplay between these interests and passions becomes the dynamic of the research community. Exploring this dynamic clarifies the philosophical underpinnings and challenges inherent to the scientific knowledge-building project.
