Triple Triumph: Three Women in Medicine book launch on September 26

Please join us for a book launch of Triple Triumph: Three Women in Medicine, a new work published by Syracuse Unbound, a joint imprint of the Syracuse University Libraries and Syracuse University Press, on Tuesday, September 26 from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. in the Goldstein Faculty Center. The book’s subjects, Dr. Sharon Brangman, Dr. Patricia Numann, and Dr. Ruth Weinstock, will be on hand to discuss and sign complimentary copies of the book.

Triple Triumph tells the story of three physicians, each of whom encountered resistance, discouragement, and obstruction from the traditional, male-dominated departments in which they worked. These powerful pioneers went on to create programs that earned the highest levels of national distinction and acclaim. Their work and their names are now legendary—in geriatric medicine, in the treatment of breast cancer, and in diabetes research and treatment. Their stories differ, but the commonalities help us understand why constructive change is often so hard-won, and what it takes in commitment, courage, and tenacity to triumph in the end.

Triple Triumph was edited by Cathryn Newton, special advisor to the Chancellor and Provost for faculty engagement, dean emerita of the College of Arts and Sciences, and professor of earth and of interdisciplinary sciences, and Samuel Gorovitz, professor of philosophy and former dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. This publication was made possible with generous support from Upstate Medical University.  It is the second open access publication from Syracuse Unbound, an imprint that offers free, global availability through SURFACE, the University’s open access repository.

Behind the scenes of “The Three Musketeers” with Bob Hupp

En garde! Join Syracuse Stage Artistic Director Bob Hupp on Monday, October 2 at 5 p.m. in the Peter Graham Scholarly Commons in Bird Library to explore how he brought the current production of “The Three Musketeers” to life on stage.

This action-packed adaptation of Alexandre Dumas’ 1844 classic novel follows the dashing young D’Artagnan and his three companions, Athos, Aramis, and Porthos, as they fight for the honor of their queen. Carefully guarded secrets, lavish swordfights, and sweeping romances all develop as the musketeers duel their way into glory.

Syracuse Stage’s 45th season opens with “The Three Musketeers” on September 20. The show is one of two co-productions with the College of Visual and Performing Arts’ Department of Drama, along with the “The Wizard of Oz,” which opens on November 29.

The Library Associates of the Syracuse University Libraries are pleased to present this unique lecture and reception in Bird Library, which is free and open to the public.

Prior to joining Syracuse Stage, Hupp was the producing artistic director of the Arkansas Repertory Theater in Little Rock for 16 seasons. From 1989-1999, he was artistic director of the acclaimed Jean Cocteau Repertory in New York. Hupp also served on the board of the Theatre Communications Group, a nonprofit theatrical organization in New York, and has served as a panelist and on-site evaluator for the National Endowment for the Arts. He graduated from Dickinson College and completed a two-year certificate program at the National Shakespeare Conservatory in New York.

If you need an accommodation in order to fully participate in this event, please contact Bianca Caiella Breed at bcaiella@syr.edu by September 28.
