    Location: Terra Tea and Fair Trade at the Isabel Rose Cafe

    When: August 30, 2012
    Time: 12:30 pm–2:00 pm

     

     

     

    Meet science writer and The Fossil Hunter author Shelly Emling who will be at Terra Tea Salon to talk about her latest book, "Marie Curie and Her Daughters", Thursday, August 30, 12:30-2:00 pm. Terra Tea Salon is located in the Montclair Public Library, 50 South Fullerton Avenue, Montclair.

    Emling's new work reveals a hidden side of the life of two-time Nobel Prize winner Marie Curie, co-discoverer of radioactivity and the first to use it as an experimental treatment for cancer. Her plainly told tale shows Curie as she struggles to balance her passion for discovery and arduous work as a scientist after the death of her husband and collaborator Pierreas with the equally challenging task of raising two daughters.

    Drawing on newly available letters between Marie and her daughters, and extensive interviews with Marie's granddaughter, Helene Langevin-Joliot, Emling shows Marie as a loving, if often absent, mother who encouraged her daughters to pursue their own ideas and passions. Her older daughter, Irene, won the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 1935 for her work with her husband, Frederic, in developing synthetic radioactivity; Marie's younger daughter, Eve, had a flourishing career as an international journalist and humanitarian who in later life worked with UNICEF.

    In this admiring family tale, Emling also reveals for the first time the key role American journalist Missy Meloney played in first bringing Marie Curie on her first trip to America, where she was received by adoring crowds, and then helping spearhead campaigns to raise much needed money to support Marie's work.

    SHELLEY EMLING has been a journalist for twenty years and her work, including science articles, has previously appeared in The New York TimesUSA TodayFortuneSlateThe Wall Street JournalThe TimesThe Huffington Post, FoxNews.com, Beliefnet.com, The Christian Science Monitor, and the International Herald Tribune. Until last year, she was based in London, UK, where she covered Europe for six years for Cox Newspapers, a chain of 17 daily newspapers across the United States that includes The Atlanta Journal Constitution. She launched one of the first blogs for The International Herald Tribune, called Raising the Roof. She is currently the editor of AOL Montclair Patch. She lives in Montclair, NJ.

    Location: The Jardine Academy
    61 Myrtle St, Cranford, NJ
    When: Daily

    This summer, the 2012 workshop Theater Project Jr. will offer its annual production to the general public. WILLY WONKA JR., a kid-friendly adaptation of the Roald Dahl classic, will be presented at the Jardine Academy, 61 Myrtle Street in Cranford. Three performances, on August 17 and 18 at 8 p.m. and 19 at 2 p.m., have been scheduled. Tickets are available at $12 apiece, and children under 5 will be admitted free.

    WILLY WONKA JR. is a stage adaptation of CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY. It tells the story of a world-famous confectioner and his quest to find an heir. Dahl’s book was adapted by Leslie Bricusse and Timothy Allen McDonald, with a musical score written by Bricusse and his STOP THE WORLD collaborator, Anthony Newley. Among the many infectious tunes is “The Candy Man,” a song that became a huge hit record for another junior, Sammy Davis.

    This delightful fantasy has been popular for generations. Gene Wilder starred in a 1971 film version, WILLY WONKA AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY, remade with Johnny Depp in 2005.

    WILLY WONKA JR. is the sixth production for this educational program, which began in 2007 with a lively version of OLIVER! Children from 8 to 18 participate in a nine week workshop, culminating in a musical performance. Previous shows have included GREASE and THE WIZARD OF OZ.

    The Other Side of War: The Civil War on the Home Front

    Macculloch Hall Historical Museum presents a different side of the Civil War in The Other Side of War: The Civil War on the Home Front. The exhibit is featured in the museum’s upstairs gallery through November 11th.

    Life on the home front was not easy for loved ones whom the soldiers left behind. Women played an important role in the Union war effort; starting the U.S. Sanitary Commission, serving as nurses, gathering goods and raising money for the soldiers, which all contributed to the Union victory. The exhibit includes letters from soldiers writing home asking for supplies that they needed in camp, Civil War poetry by Walt Whitman and others, and describes Whitman’s lesser known job as a Civil War nurse.  A nurse’s lamp is featured in the section that illustrates the importance of nurses and the Sanitary Commission during the war. Photographs of the women and children left at home are featured, as are the stories of the Macculloch grandsons who served while their families remained in Morristown doing their part for the war effort.  Engravings by Thomas Nast and Winslow Homer help to illustrate the importance of the home front and the roles women played to help the soldiers at the war front.

     

    The stories of the men and women on both fronts are heroic and moving. Local Morris County men wrote home asking for various supplies unavailable through traditional army supply channels. One of these men, Lindley Hoffman Miller who lived at Macculloch Hall, wrote letters and poems home describing his experiences as a white officer of a regiment of black troops. Robert Gould Shaw, who led one of the first black regiments (upon whom the movie Glorywas based), his sister Josephine Shaw Lowell and her husband Charles Russell Lowell shared intriguing stories of heroism on the battlefield and taking place at home with one another. The exhibit features a letterbook written by Josephine talking about her newborn daughter’s life after her husband Charles was killed in the war. Robert Gould Shaw served in the 7th NY State Militia along with the Macculloch’s grandson Lindley Hoffman Miller. 

     

    Winslow Homer and Thomas Nast created drawings forHarper’s Weekly during the early 1860s; their illustrations of the hardships felt by the soldiers and those they left behind help document the home front during the war. A common theme in both letters and images of the home front is the importance of letters between families and friends, which told whether loved ones were alive or dead. One soldier signed every letter home, “please write soon.”

     

    James Russell Lowell (Charles’ uncle), Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson wrote poetry during and after the war that inspired loyalty, captured some of its pathos, and celebrated acts of heroism. In addition to his work as a poet, Whitman served as a nurse during the war. Although not medically trained as they are today, nurses performed an important and necessary service during the war. Many women became nurses and helped to win better conditions and secure supplies for the soldiers. Without their efforts the war may have turned out differently.

     

    The President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln, led the North through the war and was assassinated just before the conflict ended. The death of the President was felt throughout the Union. Mourning and memorial badges were worn and memorial images were created to celebrate the President. The exhibit features Lincoln memorabilia from the Museum’s collection including a plate from his White House china, and a document signed by Lincoln as President and by the Secretary of War.

     

    Macculloch Hall Historical Museum preserves the history of the Macculloch-Miller families, the Morris area community, and the legacy of its founder W. Parsons Todd through its historic site, collections, exhibits, and educational and cultural programs.
