Living and Laughing by The Chopsticks-Fork Principle

The Livingston Public Library is partnering with the New Jersey Council for the Humanities to host the Public Scholars Project program, Living and Laughing by The Chopsticks-Fork Principle, on Wednesday April 15th at 7pm, presented by Cathy Bao Bean.

With delight and good humor, Cathy Bao Bean will encourage people to realize and understand (and laugh about!) how we are all at least bi-cultural (by ethnicity, gender, generation, status, wealth, etc.) in a way that shatters stereotypes but explains the generalizations. She does this by making the “familiar” and “foreign” into each other and by telling personal stories about ordinary events that raise extraordinary cultural questions 

Cathy Bao Bean, author of The Chopsticks-Fork Principle, A Memoir and Manual and co-author of The Chopsticks-Fork Principle x 2, A Bilingual Reader for ESL and CFL learners, is a daughter, mother, wife, friend, sister, aerobics instructor, business manager, and Chair of the Society for Values in Higher Education as well as its Summer Workshop for Teachers in China team leader. 

This program has been made possible in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the New Jersey Council for the Humanities (NJCH). Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of the NEH or NJCH.

The program is free and open to all. More information can be found on the Library’s website, www.livingstonlibrary.org or by calling the Library at (973) 992-4600.

'A Doll's House Part 2' Makes Timeless Claims at Summit Playhouse

SUMMIT, NJ – You wouldn’t think a follow-up to Henrik Ibsen’s play about Nora Helmer in 19th century Norway would be especially relevant today.

But the smart, funny sequel by Lucas Hnath has much to say about marriage, the cost of independence, abandoning one’s family and other issues that ring true. When Nora insists that marriage won’t exist in 20 or 30 years, ...
