Consider these recommendations for upcoming virtual talks, readings and more in and around New York City:

Monday at the Movies Cinema Chat: Trouble in Paradise (Online Event)

Monday, May 11, 6 p.m.

Art Deco Society of New York

In a previous era of crisis, Americans escaped into Hollywood glamour. Catch the premier of a new ADSNY series with the co-authors of Screen Deco: A Celebration of High Style in Hollywood, Howard Mandelbaum and Eric Myer. They’ll show and discuss Ernst Lubitsch’s 1932 romantic comedy visual feast, Trouble in Paradise ($15).

Ultimate Price: Howard Steven Friedman
Tuesday, May 12, 7 p.m.
McNally Jackson

As much of the country reopens, a conversation about the value we assign to a human life seems more timely than ever. Find data scientist Howard Steven Friedman sharing insights from his brand-new book, Ultimate Price: The Value We Place on Life. He’ll discuss the price tag calculations that inform our health, safety and economy, and the hidden “gender, racial, national, and cultural biases” that produce the final tallies (free).

Lost Jewel: Tracking Down the Spanish Pavilion of the NY World’s Fair
Wednesday, May 13, 11 a.m.
Landmark West
Live stream only
Go down the trail of the 1964-1965 New York World’s Fair’s Spanish Pavilion, considered the “Jewel of the Fair” before it embarked on a second life as the lobby of a St. Louis Hilton ($10).
