BOOKED SOLID: Season's Readings

As the holidays approach, it's time for students across the country to catch up on relaxation, sleep and drum roll, please pleasure reading.


BOOKED SOLID: Oh, Howe, I love thee.

My favorite place to read at Dartmouth is not actually on campus. Lounging on the Green with a book is nice, of course, but when it comes to curling up on a cushy sofa with a great view and a good book, the Howe Library Hanover's charming and impressive public library has simply got campus beat.


BOOKED SOLID: Podcast of Characters

In the high-pressure world of higher education, where the reading load is basically infinite, students (and, erm, certain columnists) may not have time to read a book every week or if they do, they may not want to spend their previous free time further destroying their eyesight.


‘Prairie Home' shown almost live at the Hop

Thursday evening, the Hopkins Center offered the Dartmouth community an opportunity to see this week's performance of "A Prairie Home Companion" as a live HD broadcast in Spaulding Auditorium.


BOOKED SOLID: 'Freke' Show

I read "I, Emma Freke" (2010) after a painful midterm, and I really couldn't have asked for a better way to get my mind off the fact that math and I are never going to get along.



Hood displays Stella's ‘Polygons'

Gavin Huang / The Dartmouth Gavin Huang / The Dartmouth Gavin Huang / The Dartmouth Gavin Huang / The Dartmouth Last February, President Barack Obama presented abstract artist Frank Stella with a National Medal of the Arts, describing the artist as "obviously a legend for his accomplishments as one of the world's most innovative painters and sculptors" and calling Stella's works "modern masterpieces." In his new book, "Frank Stella: Irregular Polygons, 1965-66," former Hood Museum director Brian Kennedy declares that Stella is "one of the most important visual artists to emerge from the mid-twentieth century." The Hood's new exhibit, "Frank Stella: Irregular Polygons" which opened on Saturday and celebrates the museum's 25th anniversary brings Stella and his legendary abstract designs back to the Dartmouth campus. Stella's relationship with the College began in 1963, when he came to campus as an artist-in-residence, the artist said in an interview with The Dartmouth.
