gangsofnewyorkIn addition to hosting our Next Great Books Discussion Group meeting on Tuesday 11/10 (discussion of  Tobias Wolff’s “Smokers.” The topic is envy) ;  we are fortunate to have the Honors Commons hosting a a showing of Martin Scorcese’s THE GANGS OF NEW YORK tomorrow, Tuesday, at 4:00 p.m. in the (Room 112 of the Library).    Since the film is about 2.5 hours, the starting time is 4:00, (one  half hour prior to posted times in the original publicity for the Movie series).  Prof. Robert Forman compiled this CLASSICAL MYTH GOES HOLLYWOOD film series, and chose 10-Time Oscar Nominated “Gangs” because it has  “elements of the Odyssey in it, although it concerns the New York City Draft Riots of 1863 and is based on the novel by Herbert Asbury.”
