    Romeo and Juliet vs. West Side Story


    Join us on Sunday, November 19 for a very special concert by the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra.

    Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers have inspired some truly glorious music. Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet captures the passion of Shakespeare’s timeless tragedy about warring families with music at once tender, virile, and heart-breaking — filled with the ardor of the doomed young lovers. Not only does it contain much of the composer’s finest and most instantly appealing music, it is also considered one of the most exceptional musical realizations of Shakespeare. Next, Bernstein’s West Side Story brings the feud between the Montagues and Capulets to rival Puerto Rican and white gangs in New York.
    With the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra under the baton of promising Chinese conductor Elim Chan.


    The Antwerp Symphony Orchestra is resident at the new Queen Elisabeth Hall, next to the Antwerp Zoo and the Centraal Station. The orchestra has chosen an American theme for its 2018-19 season, including the music of Bernstein, Sousa, Pixar soundtracks, etc.

    The price includes the best seats in the house, a program booklet and a glass of bubbly in their exclusive business lounge.

    Please note that this event is limited to 20 participants, so please sign up quickly.

    The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd


    In this book, Sue Monk Kidd presents a masterpiece of hope, daring, the quest for freedom, and the desire to have a voice in the world. The novel begins on Sarah’s eleventh birthday, when she is given ownership of ten year-old Handful, who is to be her handmaid. We follow their remarkable journeys over the next thirty five years, as both strive for a life of their own, dramatically shaping each other’s destinies and forming a complex relationship marked by guilt, defiance, estrangement and the uneasy ways of love.

    About Sue Monk Kidd
    Kidd’s other best-sellers include The Secret Life of Bees (2002) and The Mermaid Chair (2005).  She has co-written a bestselling memoir with her daughter, Ann Kidd Taylor, titled Traveling with Pomegranates: A Mother-Daughter Story (2009), as well as authoring several acclaimed memoirs, including The Dance of the Dissident Daughter (1996). Kidd lives in southwest Florida with her husband, Sandy and their black Labrador retriever.

    Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford
     

    Set during one of the most conflicted and volatile times in American history: the internment of American-Japanese families during World War II.
    Jamie Ford has created an unforgettable duo whose story teaches us about forgiveness and the power of the human heart. The book was awarded the 2010 Asian/Pacific American Award for Literature and was named the #1 Book Club Pick for Fall 2009/Winter 2010 by the American Booksellers Association.

    Jamie Ford is an American author living on the West coast.  His father is of chinese ancestry, his mother is of European descent

    Lives of Girls and Women
    by Alice Munro (Canada, Nobel Prize 2013)
     

    This book, rather more a collection of would-be stand-alone stories with a common principal character, invites the reader to witness the life and world of Del, a young girl whose experiences and encounters in growing up form the basis of each "story" or section as she grows from a young girl into womanhood. The reader is compelled to experience the struggle and wonder of growing up that is common amongst all of us, in a story that is peppered with extraordinary circumstances and trials that, thankfully, relatively few of us ever have to experience.

    Lives of Girls and Women is a coming-of-age story, full of the tumultuous times one goes through on the road to growing up, the universal truths about growing up and the tragedies that are suffered by far too many of us. More than that, it is the story of place and of the complex relationships that form between those with whom people live and experience life. It is about life itself, in all its beauty and ugliness.

    Venue: Laura's place.

    Come and join a networking time at another Brussels bar as we embark on the Second Tuesday Historic Bar Tour (but held on a Third Tuesday) social hour in the Ixelles neighborhood. So, if you are not traveling for the holidays, come join us! We found this review on TripAdvisor:

    "Supra Bailly is a pleasant historic café from the 1930s in a neoclassical building from 1890 at the corner of Rue du Bailli and Rue Simonis. The attractive facade is covered in black ceramic tiles. The interior is a bit worn, but has some nice features (stucco ceiling, chandeliers, stained glass door …). The front room is a lovely place to have a coffee or a beer. The waiters at Supra Bailly are relaxed and friendly. "

    The Historic Bar Tour events are held the second Tuesday of each month and take place at different and great locations throughout the city of Brussels.  Everyone is welcome and feel free to bring friends!

    “Enter Poechenellekelder to embrace the millennial history of Brussels ... By pushing the door of a real tavern after meeting Manneken Pis, then sit at the table with the heirs of guilds, centenaries and hear the murmur the Brussels plotters against Philippe II, King of Spain ...”
