From Kids Gone Wild to the Myth of Ephraim Tutt

Sunday, July 12, 2015 - 9:00pm

In recent years there have been a number of reports on television news programs of new wild teen sex practices. These lurid reports have focused on “rainbow parties” and “shag bands”. Oprah even covered these stories. These out of control sexual escapades by young teenagers were described in the news as very real and “widespread”. The only problem was that the stories were fictional, modern urban legends. Why did this happen and what do these stories tell us about how we think about technology, teens and sex?

Tim Weiner

Sunday, July 12, 2015 - 10:30pm

One Man Against the World  the new book by Pulitzer Prize winning author Tim Weiner paints a devastating portrait of a tortured yet brilliant man who led the country largely according to a deep-seated insecurity and distrust of not only his cabinet and congress, but the American population at large. In riveting, tick-tock prose, Weiner illuminates how the Vietnam War and the Watergate controversy that brought about Nixon's demise were inextricably linked.

Ardis Cameron: Unbuttoning America: A Biography Of Peyton Place

Wednesday, July 1, 2015 - 2:30pm

When this novel was published in the early 1950s, it caused an extraordinary uproar. Conservatives thought it was filth; while liberals considered it lowbrow trash. The author did not conform to cultural ideals of what a woman novelist should look like or behave. But the novel was immensely popular because it spoke to women about things that were important in their lives but that were never mentioned in “polite society”.
