Tibetan Birds and Sky Burial

As Staten Island OutLOUD celebrates Dashiell Hammett’s The Maltese Falcon for The Big Read, we’ll take a cultural detour to explore one of Staten Island’s treasures, the Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art. And there we’ll find some intriguing & unexpected tie-ins to some themes and imagery in The Maltese Falcon. We’ll examine how Tibetan art and art objects incorporate bird images (plenty of cranes, maybe a falcon or two), and the Himalayan custom of sky burial (plenty of vulture, and maybe a few falcons, as they eat carrion). We’ll also hear from Meg Ventrudo, the museum’s Director, about a notorious Asian art heist – Shades of The Maltese Falcon?

Event Location: Tibetan Museum, 338 Lighthouse Ave, Staten Island, NY 10306

Women and Crime

Staten Island OutLOUD & the Staten Island Women's Bar Association join forces to present “Women and the Criminal Justice System,” a community dialogue on women involved in the criminal justice system. Does the system treat female defendants differently from male defendants? If so, what are those differences? How are formerly incarcerated women reintegrated into society upon release? What are the reasons why most women are in prison and what are the special challenges they face? If the case against Brigid O'Shaughnessy were brought to trial now, how would she be prosecuted? How would she be defended? Guest speakers TBA. Other issues that we'll explore include: a layperson's overview of criminal work; how defense attorneys work with the police & DA; how defense attorneys work with private investigators. We'll also examine a frequent layperson's question: "How can a defense attorney represent a 'bad guy'? More details TBA.

Event Location: Historic Richmond Town Courtroom, 441 Clarke Ave, Staten Island, NY 10306
