Combining guitar mastery, contemporary singer/songwriter and a passion for storytelling, she thrives on bringing people together through the language of music. Christie’s unique guitar work and profound instrumental compositions are well described as ‘Michael Hedges meets Joni Mitchell and Dave Matthews.’ Among the vast community of fingerstyle and tapping guitarists, her niche is the integration of melodic pop lyricism with catchy hooks that excite both modern commercial listeners and classic purists. With a menu of percussive and sonic effects, and larger than life sounding instruments, her solo shows embody layers of orchestral elements See Christie Lenée to Perform page 8

Author Spencer Borisoff – a writer with local Philly ties – pulls back the curtain on the suffocating nature of work life in America in his harsh and humorous book “Work Sucks!” pencer Borisoff, in his newly released book, “Work Sucks!: A funny view of a serious problem,” calls out corporate America and the bosses who run it, calls for longer weekends and shorter workweeks and calls to a majority disengaged workforce that craves a better balanced, more compassionate labor based system. Author Spencer Borisoff – a writer with local Philly ties – pulls back the curtain on the suffocating nature of work life in America in his harsh and humorous book “Work Sucks!” Based on his own wild ride across corporate America – a rollercoaster of dizzying loops and drops during his trip through 30 different jobs by the age of 45 – the book offers quick, clever chapters on work topics including rush hour, bosses, alarm clocks, pink slips, performance reviews, work arrest and the Sunday night shakes amongst others.

Free Opera on the Mall Broadcast

Philly AIDS Thrift Hosts 13th Annual Block Party

Continued from front page

delphia’s inaugural annual festival, the opera – a company commission from Daniel Bernard Roumain, Marc Bamuthi Joseph, and Bill T. Jones – was a hit with audiences and critics alike. Following its seven sold-out performances in Philadelphia, We Shall Not Be Moved went on to make warmly-welcomed New York and European debuts. The enthusiastic reception it received at Harlem’s Apollo Theater and Amsterdam’s Opera Forward Festival, where it was presented by Dutch National Opera, proved that this timely, Philadelphia-based work could also find relevance with the wider international community. “The world premiere of We Shall Not Be Moved in Festival O17 was an example of how opera can tell our stories and create a dialogue on important issues like racism, gun violence, police brutality, and poverty,” said David B. Devan, General Director & President of Opera Philadelphia. “We are thrilled to bring We Shall Not Be Moved to Independence Mall in a free HD broadcast, and to share this important and powerful work with thousands of people who either could not afford to see it last year or could not get a ticket once it sold out. We are so very grateful to PNC Arts Alive, PECO, and the many generous individual donors who made this event possible.” The poetic interdisciplinary chamber opera draws on the collective talents of HaitianAmerican composer Daniel Bernard Roumain, Haitian-American spoken word artist Marc Bamuthi Joseph, and peerless director, choreographer, and dramaturge Bill T. Jones. In a production that combines spoken word, contemporary dance, video projection, and classical, R&B and jazz singing with a brooding, often joyful score, they tell the story of five North Philadelphia teens on the run: a 15-year-old African-American girl and her self-selected “family” of four brothers – a black-identified white boy and three African-Americans, one of whom is transgender. Their confrontation with local police officer Glenda – herself a woman of color – rises from the enduring ashes of the Philadelphia police’s 1985 bombing of the MOVE compound in West Philadelphia, and raises timely questions about national identity, race, gender, the failure for some of the public education system, and personal responsibility. We Shall Not Be Moved stars spoken word artist Lauren Whitehead as 15-year-old Un/Sung, with countertenor John Holiday, bass-baritone Aubrey Allicock, tenor Daniel Shirley, and baritone Adam Richardson as her four self-appointed “brothers,” and soprano Kirstin Chávez as police officer Glenda, under the baton of Viswa Subbaraman. Opera on the Mall is presented through the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and PNC Arts Alive. Opera Philadelphia has received dedicated funding for Opera on the Mall from PECO, Hamilton Family Charitable Trust, and dedicated gifts from individual donors, including the Mazzotti/Kelly Fund of the Philadelphia Foundation, Drs. Beverly Lange and Renato Baserga, and more than 200 individual donations to the company’s first-ever crowdfunding campaign through Kickstarter. Event information is available at www.operaonthemall.org or by calling 215-732-8400.

verbrook School for the Blind (OSB) will present the first Caulfield Medal of Distinction to Jeffrey D. Marrazzo and Katherine A. High, M.D., Co-Founders of Spark Therapeutics, during the fifth annual Overbrook Experience Dinner on Tuesday, October 9, 2018. Created in honor of the legacy and pioneering spirit of Genevieve Caulfield, an alumna of Overbrook School for the Blind, the Caulfield Medal of Distinction is awarded to individuals or organizations responsible for exceptional deeds that improve society, especially the lives of those living with disabilities. “From the moment she was old enough to attend school, Genevieve Caulfield absorbed learning wherever it appeared, an ideal that we infuse in our students every day,” says Todd Reeves, Executive Director and CEO of Overbrook School for the Blind. “The only real comment Overbrook School for the Blind (OSB) will present the first Caulfield Medal of Distinction she ever made on her disability was to Jeffrey D. Marrazzo and Katherine A. High, M.D., Co-Founders of Spark Therapeutics, during the fifth annual Overbrook Experience Dinner on October 9, 2018. a paradoxical one, that perhaps God took away her eyesight to divert her from the quiet world of scholarship into the world of action.” “When we were considering recipients for the Caulfield Medal of Distinction this year, it did not take very long to determine that Spark’s own pioneering spirit and relentless pursuit of innovation are without peer, both right here in Philadelphia and like Ms. Caulfield, far beyond our city limits, as well,” says Warwick S. Wheeler, President of the Overbrook School for the Blind Board of Trustees. Spark Therapeutics, a fully integrated company committed to discovering, developing and delivering gene therapies based in West Philadelphia, is challenging the inevitability of genetic diseases, including blindness, hemophilia and neurodegenerative diseases. Under the leadership of Marrazzo and High, the Philadelphia-based company received approval in late 2017 from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the first gene therapy for an inherited retinal disease and successfully saw the first patients treated with this gene therapy earlier this year. The Overbrook Experience Dinner connects guests with the challenges that students who are blind, visually impaired or living with additional disabilities face each day. More than $300,000 has been raised by the Overbrook Experience Dinner to support the M. Christine Murphy Horticulture Education Center on OSB’s campus and improve student access to adaptive/assistive technology. The 2018 Overbrook Experience Dinner will be held on the Overbrook School for the Blind campus at 6333 Malvern Avenue in Philadelphia on Tuesday, October 9, 2018 from 6 to 9 p.m. In addition to cocktails and dinner, the evening includes a silent and live auction, and live music performed by Overbrook School for the Blind student musicians. Tickets to the 2018 Overbrook Experience Dinner are available by contacting Robert Smith, OSB Director of Development at rsmith@obs.org.

Protecting Children from Local Human Trafficking Free Community Program October 3 at WCU’s Sykes Theater By Carol Metzker, Author of “Facing the Monster: How One Person Can Fight Child Slavery” ragically, 11-14 years old is the average age of formal entry into commercial sexual exploitation. This is sex trafficking. It happens here on the Main Line. When children should be reading elementary mysteries, playing middle school soccer and tackling algebra, they are being groomed and sold for sex. They are being noticed, encouraged and deceived by anonymous “friends” on social media apps or adults who they already know and have access to their home. They are locking away dangerous secrets out of fear, lack of self-worth and a lack of understanding that comes from being children. Frighteningly, by the time some parents – and some school personnel who abide by parents’ wishes to wait to talk about predators and sexual abuse until high school (or never) – talk to students about human trafficking, protection and prevention, it’s already happening. A life with a path of trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, numbing pain through alcohol and drugs, and long-lasting mental and physical health problems is already underway. To help adult community members grasp what human trafficking is and how they can help protect kids, the West Chester University’s (WCU) Undergraduate Social Work Department, the Chester County Anti-Human Trafficking Coalition and Chester County Fund for Women and Girls are offering a special program. “I Am Little Red: Protecting Children from Human Trafficking” is free and open to the public, on October 3, 2018, 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at WCU’s Sykes Theater. “I Am Little Red” At the forefront of the program is a screening of “I Am Little Red.” This short new animated video for youth showcases the creative efforts of several Academy Award-nominees and winners. Its script was co-written by ten survivors of human trafficking, ages 14-21, Alec Sokolow (writer of “Toy Story”) and Mary Mazzio. Along with this video screening, there will be a panel of experts including a local survivor, a case manager who has worked with child-victims, Pennsylvania State Police and a representative from PA State Senator Dinniman’s office to help attendees grasp the problem better and to learn about solutions for prevention. There will also be a short discussion of solutions—practical steps that parents, coaches, professionals, and community members who care about children can use immediately. Walk-ins welcome; registration is suggested/required for anyone requesting Social Work CEUs: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/i-am-little-red-tickets-46995848849. Fortunately, there are local organizations and individuals who are working against human trafficking and creating solutions to this horrific crime. Become educated to become part of those solutions on October 3, 2018.

Spencer Borisoff’s New Book “Work Sucks!” Continued from front page

employees, the U.S. – and the world at large – is in the midst of an employee engagement crisis. “Work Sucks!” is the contemporary voice of the disengaged American worker. “I was tired of smelling the world’s morning breath when I opened my eyes at sunrise,” Borisoff explained to Natalie Taylor, host of Tampa Bay’s Morning Blend television Spencer Borisoff’s newly released book, “Work Sucks!: A funny view of a serious problem,” calls out corporate America and the bosses who run it, calls for longer weekends and shorter workweeks and calls to a majority disengaged workforce that craves a better balanced, more compassionate labor based system. show, when asked why he wrote the book. “When you haven’t found your passion and you find your work experience excruciating, it’s too personal to share that with people. Also, it’s safer to bite your tongue than risk losing a paycheck by speaking your mind, so I realized that I could be the voice for millions of people.” Spencer Borisoff is a 1987 graduate of Lower Merion High School and received his B.A. degree in English writing in 1991 from the University of Pittsburgh. He is the son of Philadelphia soul legend and Grammy nominated singer and songwriter, Len Barry, “1-2-3”. The book is available on Amazon in print & Kindle versions, online at Barnes & Noble and other online retailers. For more info visit: www.worksucksthebook.com.
