Betty Pack was charming, beautiful, and intelligent — and she knew it. As an agent for Britain’s MI-6 and then America’s OSS during World War II, these qualities proved crucial to her success. This is the remarkable story of this “Mata Hari from Minnesota” (Time) and the passions that ruled her tempestuous life — a life filled with dangerous liaisons and death-defying missions vital to the Allied victory.

 The Hudson Valley String Quartet returns to the Albert Wisner Library with a concert featuring early works by Shostakovich (sixth quartet) and Beethoven (third quartet).  Shostakovich, one of the great 20th Century composers known for his massive symphonic works, was referred to as the "Beethoven of our time" by his peers. He used folk tunes as the foundation for his sixth quartet, presenting them within Beethoven's familiar classical structures.
