Wed.,  March 27, 2019, 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM

(Check-in begins at 6:15 PM, program starts at 7:00 PM)

Farrell Learning and Teaching Center, Washington University Medical School campus

520 S. Euclid Avenue, St. Louis, MO 63110

Parking/map

 Author and activist Ashton Applewhite has been recognized by the New York Times, The New Yorker, National Public Radio, and the American Society on Aging as an expert on ageism. She blogs at This Chair Rocks, speaks widely around the world, has written for Harper’s and Playboy, and is the voice of Yo, Is This Ageist? In 2016, she joined the PBS site Next Avenue’s annual list of 50 Influencers in Aging as their Influencer of the Year.

 Lively, funny, and deeply researched, This Chair Rocks traces her journey from apprehensive boomer to pro-aging radical, and in the process debunks myth after myth about late life. Explaining the roots of ageism in history and how it divides and debases, Applewhite examines how ageist stereotypes cripple the way our brains and bodies function, looks at ageism in the workplace and the bedroom, exposes the cost of the all-American myth of independence, critiques the portrayal of elders as burdens to society, describes what an all-age-friendly world would look like, and offers a rousing call to action.

Registration is required, but is free. Book purchase from the  Novel Neighbor is required to enter signing line and books can be purchased online in advance or at the event.

About MADE:

MADE is the place where St. Louis Makers, Artists, Designers, and Entrepreneurs create and collaborate. Our co-founders, Jim McKelvey and Doug Auer (the guys who brought you Third Degree Glass Factory), acted quickly when a makerspace chain went bankrupt in St. Louis, leaving over 500 local makers in the lurch. Our friends at Cortex gave Jim and Doug the tools they needed to get started, literally. We snagged all the machinery from the old place, hung onto some core staff, hoisted up our skirts and hustled on out of there. After a year spent rehabbing a 100-year old brick bunker of a building on Delmar, we plugged in our gear, polished up the terrazzo floors, and opened our doors in November 2018.

There is work in this world only you can make. Your side hustle, your bright idea, your passion project. MADE is where it’s going to happen. From the ground up. With your own two hands.

About the Croquetterie

The Croquetterie offers top-class all natural appetizers, our Artisan Bites, with Spanish cuisine and Mediterranean diet influences and innovative presentations and taste. Our main bite is the croquette cooked with bechamel and fresh ingredients, and presented with its golden and delicious crispy thin breadcrumb cover. And as not everything in life are croquettes, we also offer you a wide range of sandwiches, fresh cold and hot sips

Composer Series: César Franck @ World Chess Hall of Fame

to Mar 1

Composer Series: César Franck @ World Chess Hall of Fame

Join us as we enjoy chamber music by composer César Franck, performed by members of the St. Louis Symphony. This concert will feature selections from Franck’s beloved "Sonata for Violin and Piano," and will highlight his emotionally explosive "Piano Quintet," which is largely considered one of his crowning compositional achievements. César Franck was one of the leading composers, pianists and organists of the second half of the 19th Century. Though born in Belgium, he was educated at the Paris Conservatory and made his entire career in Paris, France. Franck was instrumental in the movement to give French music emotional engagement, technical solidity, and seriousness—comparable to that of German composers—shifting the focus away from opera and towards symphonic & chamber music.

Reservations are required.

To purchase tickets, visit worldchesshof.org or call (314) 367-9243.

*$10 tickets available for members, seniors, and military.
