The 2016 Campaign October 5, 2016
When Freshly Squeezed
began five years ago, our first session was a conversation about campaign commercials. If only this 2016 campaign were that simple! Our first panel of the year will a political roundtable with Dan Haar, columnist for the Hartford Courant,
Vivian Martin, chair of the journalism department at CCSU, and Ross Garber,
attorney with Shipman and Goodwin and former candidate for the Republican attorney general nomination. We’re not so crazy as to suppose right now that we know what the right focus will be. Not yet.
The Genius of Brian Wilson February 1, 2017
It’s cold. It’s dark. So we give you the warmth of the sun. Colin and Watkinson’s Head of School, Teri Schrader, are both convinced that Brian Wilson is an American musical genius. Give us an evening to tell you why. With Steve Metcalf at the piano we’ll talk, play and sing our way through the music of this man.
What’s Happening to English? April 5, 2017
