Seth Koven, The Match Girl and the Heiress
Porter Square Books, Thursday, April 2 at 7pm
Nellie Dowell was a match factory girl in Victorian London who spent her early years consigned to orphanages and hospitals. Muriel Lester, the daughter of a wealthy shipbuilder, longed to be free of the burden of money and possessions. Together, these unlikely soulmates sought to remake the world according to their own utopian vision of Christ's teachings. The Match Girl and the Heiress paints an unforgettable portrait of their late-nineteenth-century girlhoods of wealth and want, and their daring twentieth-century experiments in ethical living in a world torn apart by war, imperialism, and industrial capitalism.

In this captivating book, Seth Koven chronicles how each traveled the globe--Nellie as a spinster proletarian laborer, Muriel as a well-heeled tourist and revered Christian peacemaker, anticolonial activist, and humanitarian. Koven vividly describes how their lives crossed in the slums of East London, where they inaugurated a grassroots revolution that took the Sermon on the Mount as a guide to achieving economic and social justice for the dispossessed. Koven shows how they devoted themselves to Kingsley Hall--Gandhi's London home in 1931 and Britain's first "people's house" founded on the Christian principles of social sharing, pacifism, and reconciliation--and sheds light on the intimacies and inequalities of their loving yet complicated relationship.

The Match Girl and the Heiress probes the inner lives of these two extraordinary women against the panoramic backdrop of shop-floor labor politics, global capitalism, counterculture spirituality, and pacifist feminism to expose the wounds of poverty and neglect that Christian love could never heal.

Seth Koven teaches history at Rutgers. He is also the author of Slumming: Social and Sexual Politics in Victorian London.

Grand Prix Trial: Providence
Pandemonium Books and Games, Saturday, April 4 at 11am
Come earn byes for the upcoming Grand Prix in Providice, RI!

This GPT is a Standard tournament with a $10 entry fee. It begins promptly at 11:00am. The tournament runs per the official Grand Prix Trial rules. It will therefore run with Swiss and elimination rounds based on attendance.

Grand Prix Trials are run at REL Competitive. Make sure you are familiar with the tournament rules, and be aware that sloppy play carries penalties at REL Competitive that it doesn't at FNM or our weekly events, like official warnings and game losses. REL Competitive also requires decklists. Be sure to bring a decklist with you, or arrive with time to fill one out. We will not delay the tournament for players that did not leave enough time to fill out a decklist, so if you are still finishing it when the tournament begins you may get a game loss penalty for tardiness in round 1.

The winner of this event earns 2 byes at Grand Prix Providence. Top finishers will also earn store credit based on event attendance.

Grand Prix Providence is on June 20-21 and is also Standard.

Vivek Bald, Bengali Harlem and Lost Histories of South Asian America
Porter Square Books, Monday, April 6 at 7pm
In the final years of the nineteenth century, small groups of Muslim peddlers arrived at Ellis Island every summer, bags heavy with embroidered silks from their home villages in Bengal. The American demand for Oriental goods took these migrants on a curious path, from New Jersey's beach boardwalks into the heart of the segregated South. Two decades later, hundreds of Indian Muslim seamen began jumping ship in New York and Baltimore, escaping the engine rooms of British steamers to find less brutal work onshore. As factory owners sought their labor and anti-Asian immigration laws closed in around them, these men built clandestine networks that stretched from the northeastern waterfront across the industrial Midwest.

The stories of these early working-class migrants vividly contrast with our typical understanding of immigration. Vivek Bald's meticulous reconstruction reveals a lost history of South Asian sojourning and life-making in the United States. At a time when Asian immigrants were vilified and criminalized, Bengali Muslims quietly became part of some of America's most iconic neighborhoods of color, from Tremé in New Orleans to Detroit's Black Bottom, from West Baltimore to Harlem. Many started families with Creole, Puerto Rican, and African American women.

As steel and auto workers in the Midwest, as traders in the South, and as halal hot dog vendors on 125th Street, these immigrants created lives as remarkable as they are unknown. Their stories of ingenuity and intermixture challenge assumptions about assimilation and reveal cross-racial affinities beneath the surface of early twentieth-century America.

Vivek Bald is Associate Professor of Writing and Digital Media at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is the director of three documentary films: Taxi-vala/Auto-biography, Mutiny: Asians Storm British Music, and In Search of Bengali Harlem (forthcoming).
