February 20 | 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Directed by the master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, "North by Northwest" is a gripping tale of mistaken identity and espionage. Cary Grant stars as Roger Thornhill, an ordinary man thrust into an extraordinary world of danger and intrigue. As he's chased across iconic American landmarks, Thornhill must unravel a web of espionage to clear his name and save the mysterious Eve Kendall, played by Eva Marie Saint. Hitchcock's masterful storytelling and Grant's charismatic performance make "North by Northwest" a timeless classic in the realm of thrilling cinema.
In 1995, North by Northwest was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."

Musicians: Jean-Bernard Cerin, baritone; Joyce Cen, harpsichord and piano, and Eve Miller, cello
$25 ($15 members)
 
Lisette: A Song’s Journey from Haiti & Back, traces the circuitous history of “Lisette quitté la plaine,” the oldest surviving song text in early Haitian Creole that was arranged several times between c. 1757 and 1942. This program delves into the rich history of classical music in colonial Saint Domingue and traces how this song, originally famous in a slave holding society shifts in meaning as it finds new interpretations in black communities in Louisiana and modern Haiti.
 
Beyond Lisette, the program features operatic literature from early Haiti, anthem parodies from the Haitian Revolution and the American Civil War, music from 18th century Philadelphia, and virtuosic keyboard music from Louisiana and modern Haiti.
 
 
Book Event & Signing with Author Steven Ujifusa
February 29 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
FREE
 
Steven Ujifusa is a Philadelphia historian who chronicles the confluence of American business, social, and maritime history. His third book, The Last Ships from Hamburg: Business, Rivalry, and the Race to Save Russia's Jews on the Eve of World War I, tells the story of the 2.5 million Eastern European Jews who came to America between 1881 and 1914.  This mass exodus was facilitated by three businessmen whose involvement in the Jewish-American narrative has been largely forgotten: Albert Ballin (managing director of the Hamburg-America Line), Jacob Schiff (investment banker and American Jewish philanthropist), and J.P. Morgan (New York financier, partner of the Drexel family, and mastermind of the International Mercantile Marine trust).  It was released by HarperCollins in November 2023.  
 
The Last Ships of Hamburg" has been named by Publishers Weekly as one of the top books of 2023 and by the @WSJ's as one of the 17 Books to Read This Holiday Season.
 
Mr. Ujifusa will speak at Woodmere on Thursday, February 29 at 6:00 pm.  Books will be for sale.
