Page 8 POST-GAZETTE, MARCH 5, 2010 Frances Mayes Thursday, March 1 I, 2010 - 6:00 pm Boston Public Library, Copley Square Rabb Lecture Hall Free and Open to the Public Frances Mayes has always adored houses, and when she Saw Bramasole, a ne- glected, 200-year old Tuscan farmhouse nestled in five overgrown acres it was love at first sight. Out of that instant infatuation has come four marvelous and ex- traordinarily popular books: Under the Ttscan Sun, Bella Tuscany, In Tuscany, and Bringing Tuscany Home: Sen- suous Style from the Heart of Italy. All four highly personal books are about taking chances, living in Italy, lov- ing and renovating an old Italian villa, and the plea- sures of food, wine, gardens, and the "voluptuousness of Italian days." Mayes' latest book, Every Day in Tuscany: Seasons of an Italian Life, is about Tuscan seasons and her reflections on her Italian life. A book sale and author signing will follow the lecture.

ATP (Jules Aarons photo) ferry from East Boston, or sites that remain familiar today like a game of pick-up basketball in the South End. "This exhibition demon- strates the connection Jules Aaron had with Boston neighborhoods and the people who lived in them," said Aaron Schmidt, curator of the exhibition. "Jules Aarons was a true street photographer in the tradi- tion of Henri Cartier- Bresson and Helen Levitt. He found visual inspiration in the juxtaposition of people against their urban back- ground." Photography started as a hobby for Jules Aarons, a very successful engineer and physicist who helped develop, among other things, GPS technology. When he began photographing seri- ously in 1947, he chose the streets and neighborhoods of Boston as his subject. He was drawn to the way people in the neighborhoods lived their public lives and the energy with which they talked, played, and worked. He brought to his photo- graphs a technical mastery, artful eye and, most impor- tantly, a deep understanding of the neighborhoods of Bos- ton and the people who lived there. In 1997, the Boston Public Library began collecting the work of Jules Aarons. The BPL now holds the largest public collection of his work. The Print Department at the library has made it its mission to collect the work of artists with ties to the Boston area. Jules Aarons is one of many im- portant artists whose work is represented in the grow- ing collection. The exhibit is on display in the BPL's Wiggin Gallery at the Central Library in Copley Square Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, 9-5; Tues- day, Thursday, 9-7; and Sun- day, I-5 through June 4.
