Othello Airs 1:48 pm - 3:00 pm, Friday November 21st Riverside Theatre in the Park - with guest speaker Miriam Gilbert "The Noble Moor and Honest Iago: Image and Reality in Othello", a lecture and presentation by Miriam Gilbert for Riverside Theatre in the Park 2014. The value-laden adjectives, "noble" and "honest," are tossed around frequently in Shakespeare's play, and yet the action of the play forces audiences to question their meaning. What makes Othello noble, or what makes him seem noble? How is that label connected to the constant reference to Othello as an "other," namely "the Moor"? And why does everyone in the play, not just Othello, think of Iago as "honest" when the audience knows his scheming? How does Shakespeare create and then undermine these images of worth, and what finally are we to think of these men by the end of the play?

How East Iowa City Came To Be Airs 7:00 pm - 7:56 pm, Thursday November 27th WOW-Weber on Wednesday 2014 Presented by Dr. Thomas Schulein. You may be familiar with a large empty lot on Friendship Street where a large brick factory once stood. W. F. Main had a vision for a small "factory town" on the outskirts of Iowa City. This entity, really a rural subdivision, became a reality in 1900, with some lofty aims set by this entrepreneur. When development of the land did not go quite as planned, some interesting marketing tactics were used. This presentation will trace the history of early manufacturing concerns in the neighborhood and describe the suburban development of "East Iowa City" up to the present.

Using colorful images and favorite stories, local history buff Bob Hibbs highlights College Green park just east of the downtown where an affluent neighborhood grew expensive homes and first Iowa governor Robert Lucas owned a spring providing mineral water for hot baths, where a "female academy" floundered in the park and the Iowa governor's mansion was sited, but never built. A twister visited in 2006, leveling some structures while sparing others. Now, College Green grows new trees among welcoming neighbors who offer a home May 11 tour to benefit Friends of Historic Preservation. Sponsored by the Iowa City Public Library and the Friends of Historic Preservation, as part of the 2014 Irving Weber Days.
