Wednesday Noon Series Resumes at the Johns Hopkins University

The Johns Hopkins University Wednesday Noon Series will resume on Feb. 1 with a talk by Stephanie Rice Davis entitled "It Shouldn't Hurt To Be A Child". Davis, executive director of the Child Abuse Prevention Center of Maryland, says that among other factors "abuse can be related to the parent's unrealistic expectations of what children of a certain age should be doing."

The series is presented by the university's Office of Special Events. All programs in the series are held at noon and, with the exception of Feb. 22's concert in Shriver Hall, are in the Garrett Room of the Milton S. Eisenhower Library on the Homewood campus. Admission is free and open to the public.

Other February events in the series are:

  • A lecture/demonstration on Feb. 8, "Mind Magic" with Bob Fellows, magician and illusionist and director of the National Wellness Speakers Bureau and author of the book, Easily Fooled.

  • A talk on Feb. 15 entitled, "Fashion Foundations," with Vida Roberts, fashion editor of the Baltimore Sun.

  • On Feb. 22, a performance by Zuill Bailey, cellist and winner of the 1995 Yale Gordon Concerto Competition at the Peabody Institute. This presentation, co-sponsored by the Peggy and Yale Gordon Trust, will be held in Shriver Hall Auditorium.

March events in the series will include:

  • A dramatic performance, "Quilt Voices," on March 1, relating some of the realities of mid-19th century women's lives as transcribed from their diaries, letters, and other literature found in the Maryland Historical Society's manuscript collection.

  • An illustrated lecture, "Antarctica: Volcanos, Sand Dunes and Warm Frozen Lakes," on March 8, with Bruce D. Marsh, professor of earth and planetary sciences at Johns Hopkins University.

  • On March 15, "Journalists: Dirty Rotten Scoundrels," a talk by Sono Motoyama, editor of The City Paper.
