AUTHORS

Mark Sundeen: The Unsettlers – January 25

In Mark Sundeen’s new book “The Unsettlers,” three very different couples search for the simple life in modern day America. One couple, an opera singer and her husband, a former marine biologist, disembark an Amtrak train in Missouri and set off for their new homestead, sight unseen. Meanwhile, a Detroit couple turns to urban farming to revitalize the blighted city they both love. And near Missoula, Montana, a couple who have been at the forefront of organic farming navigate what it means to live and raise a family ethically. Join author Mark Sundeen and dare to imagine what a sustainable, ethical, authentic future might look like. Listen to Colorado Public Radio’s Ryan Warner talk with Sundeen about his award-winning book, “The Man Who Quit Money,” here. Wednesday, January 25. 7:00 PM. Chautauqua Community House.

FILM

Antarctic Edge: 70° South – January 27

In the wake of devastating climate events like Superstorm Sandy and Hurricane Katrina, oceanographer Oscar Schofield and his team race to understand climate change in the fastest winter-warming place on earth, and the world’s most perilous environment, the West Antarctic Peninsula. For more than 20 years, these scientists, part of the National Science Foundation’s Long Term Ecological Research Project, have witnessed the Peninsula’s rapid change as well as the fragile and rapidly declining Adelie penguin – perhaps the greatest indicator of climate change and a harbinger of what is to come. Winter sea ice has declined by three months and temperatures have increased by 11 degrees Fahrenheit, six times greater than the global average. Watch the official trailer here. Mark Serreze, director of the National Snow and Ice Data Center, will lead a post-screening discussion. Friday, January 27. 7:00 PM. Chautauqua Community House. Buy tickets online.

TALKS

The Legacy of Penfield Tate, II: February 9

The Chautauqua History Series continues with a look back at the life and times of the late Penfield Tate, II, Mayor of Boulder from 1974-1976. Penfield Tate, II was elected to Boulder City Council in 1971, as the top vote getter, and served from 1972-1976. His fellow council members chose him as mayor and he remains as Boulder’s only African American mayor. Tate was a humanitarian who advocated for equality for all. His stance on protection against discrimination based on sexual orientation cost him his political career. He and his family faced a hateful and frightening backlash. He survived the recall attempt, but was never reelected to public office. What was it like for the Tate family during those times? What can we learn from Penfield Tate’s commitment to his convictions? The honorable Penfield Tate, III, son of the late mayor, will lead the discussion. Thursday, February 9. 7:00 PM. Chautauqua Community House. Buy tickets online.

Colorado Music Festival 40th anniversary season announced

2017 marks Colorado Music Festival’s 40th anniversary and to celebrate, music director Jean-Marie Zeitouni is paying homage to the Colorado Music Festival’s (CMF) history with legendary soloists, orchestral gems and much more. “If you look at every series, you will see that they have a commemoration of the past, but at the same time they are moving in a new direction,” Zeitouni says. “I think almost every single work on the program has to do with the history of CMF.” In addition to the virtuosic CMF Orchestra, the season, which runs Thursday, June 29 through Friday, August 4, includes chamber and festival orchestra concerts, the return of CMF’s founder Giora Bernstein, pianist Olga Kern, clarinetist Boris Allakhverdyan, violinist Gil Shaham, Time for Three string trio, NPR’s “From the Top” host Christopher O’Riley and many others.

CITY PROJECTS AT CHAUTAUQUA

Chautauqua Access Management Plan

The City of Boulder is hosting a Chautauqua Access Management Plan (CAMP) open house Thursday January 26 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Chautauqua Community House. Learn about the CAMP process and possible changes to parking. We also want to hear from you on summer 2017 potential pilot strategies to address access in and around Chautauqua. Click here to answer a few questions to help us determine what pilots we should try in summer 2017. For more information, please visit www.ChautauquaAccessManagementPlan.com.

Baseline Sidewalk Project Update

The new sidewalk on the south side of Baseline Road from west of 6th to 8th Street is completed and open for walking. Parking along the south side of Baseline from west of 6th to 8th Street has re-opened. Sidewalk construction from 8th to Kinnikinic Road will be completed in February when the pedestrian safety improvements along Kinnikinic and its intersection with Baseline will occur.

Until then, a detour will route pedestrians to the north side of Baseline Road at 8th Street and west to Kinnikinic to access Chautauqua Park and Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) trails.

All work is dependent on weather, contractor schedules and material delivery and so is subject to change. For the latest construction and traffic impact information, visit www.BoulderConeZones.net and follow @boulderconezones on Twitter. For more information, visit the City of Boulder’s project page here.
