Once upon a time, there was a little house on a big prairie, and practically everyone was a ‘Green Gourmet.’ People, for the most part, lived green and ate green. This way of life was the focus of the celebrated series of books, affectionately known as the Little House books, by Laura Ingalls Wilder—only Wilder didn’t know to call it ‘green’ when she decided to record her family’s stories from the late-1800s.
Little House on the Prairie's Melissa Gilbert is putting her own spin on home-cooking, and will appear at a book-signing and discussion at Maryville University later this month.
The latest cover of Opera News features four of five performers slated for next month’s Sing for Siteman benefit concert. Stephanie Blythe, Theo Lebow, Daniel Brevik and Tobias Greenhalgh grace the cover of the magazine’s June 2014 edition, along with fellow artist Elizabeth Futral.
Walter Gropius used traditional New England materials in fresh ways to demonstrate his core design philosophies. The house truly is an iconic example of ingenious design that had not been seen before.
Dan Rather, Mark Lombardi president Maryville University
Hundreds of you were at Powell Hall earlier this week to hear legendary newsman Dan Rather’s lecture as part of the Maryville University St. Louis Speakers Series. From my perch, I saw many in the audience lean forward when Mr. Rather began discussing the distinct traits that every great leader—from Dwight Eisenhower to Martin Luther King, Jr. to Mother Teresa and so on—has. A top trait he mentioned was courage. Another was character. Also on the list: the ability to forgive, to delegate and to find common ground.
Another stellar lineup is in store for the 2014-2015 season of the St. Louis Speakers Series presented by Maryville University. The season begins Oct. 7 with award-winning actor/social activist Martin Sheen.
Next week, legendary newsman Dan Rather will appear at Powell Hall as part of Maryville University’s St. Louis Speakers Series. The former CBS anchor and current host of Dan Rather Reports once said, I can’t remember a time when I didn’t want to be a reporter. Indeed, from the Kennedy assassination, the 1968 Democratic National Convention and Watergate to the Challenger disaster and the invasion of Iraq, Rather has been bringing us the news for more than 60 years. We can’t imagine a time when he wasn’t a reporter.
