The Rise and Fall of the Federal Theatre.
The success of the Historic Federal Theatre right after the economic collapse in the 1930, its enormous contribution with the employment it created for the actors and artists, the interest generated, the social reinforcement it provided through its thought provoking and 'sheer fun' performances during one of America's most difficult times; and the reasons, according to historic reports, of why it was closed down.
A pre-publication essay will be read with a general discussion to follow:
Narveen Aryaputri, M.A., B.Ed.
Narveen completed her M.A. in English Literature with special emphasis on 19th. C. American Literature from Meerut University, India in the 1970s. She taught at University level overseas until her immigration to USA. She continued her studies independently, developing into an essayist after her daughter Manisha was at University and later married Justin Snider. They have two children, Nicasio Cole and Zahra Analee.
In the '90s, Narveen completed the restoration of the Arts and Craft/ Prairie School style building in Moline: The Moline Commercial Club, 1530 Fifth Ave. as well as completed the restoration of the oldest building in our area and region: the Carpenter Gothic style home known as the Spencer house, in the Historic Broadway district of Rock Island, which she converted to a Landmark designation. Since then The Spencer House belongs to Rock Island Police Sargent Dy Robinson.
Narveen continues to manage the business in the Moline Commercial Club and its affiliate, The Institute for Cultural and Healing Traditions, working with the directors of The Institute; continuing, since 1996, its evenings for the area Independent Scholars, who continue to meet on Thursdays to present their ongoing work to the public.
Narveen is a contributor to the manuscript "Life on The Mississippi - The New Millennium" a series of essays maintained at The Institute as a history-in-the-making public written forum.
