Diane Rehm - When My Time Comes—in conversation with Kojo Nnamdi at Sixth & I, 7pm at Sixth & I (600 I Street NW). Diane Rehm, renowned radio host and best-selling author, brings us When My Time Comes, a book of candor and compassion, addressing the urgent, hotly contested cause of the Right-to-Die movement, of which she is one of our most inspiring champions. Through interviews with terminally ill patients, and with physicians, ethicists, spouses, relatives, and representatives of those who vigorously oppose the movement, Rehm gives voice to a broad range of people who are personally linked to the realities of medical aid in dying. The book presents the fervent arguments--both for and against--that are propelling the current debates across the nation about whether to adopt laws allowing those who are dying to put an end to their suffering. With characteristic even-handedness, Rehm skillfully shows both sides of the argument, providing the full context for this highly divisive issue. $22

Marouan Benabdallah: "Arabesque" [CONCERT], 2-4pm at Coolidge Auditorium, Library of Congress, Thomas Jefferson Building (10 First Street SE). Pianist Marouan Benabdallah is one of the foremost representatives of his native Morocco on the international stage. For years he has been developing repertoire that goes beyond the canonic works of the literature he has performed to great acclaim, to include music from the Middle East and north Africa. Benabdallah will perform some of the remarkable finds from his explorations, with music by composers from Syria, Algeria, Lebanon, United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Morocco on the program. These pieces are paired with his own solo piano arrangement of Saint-Saëns’ Africa, juxtaposing the exoticized European “Arabesque” with recent music by composers who offer their own take. FREE
