Orson Welles, born 100 years ago this month, would have left an indelible imprint on filmmaking if he’d stopped with Citizen Kane in 1941. But he would work more than four more decades, accruing 35 big-screen credits as a director and more than 100 as an actor before his death in 1985. Recall, or be introduced to, Welles’ genius with screenings of five of his films in May – curated by John Tibbetts, associate professor of film and media studies at the University of Kansas.

In the Stanley H. Durwood Film Vault, Central Library, 14 W. 10th St.

The Kansas City Royals were on their way to a fourth 100-loss season in five years when Dayton Moore took over as general manager in June 2006, and their string of non-playoff seasons would stretch to 28 before his painstaking rebuilding plan memorably kicked in a year ago.

Sitting down with Matt Fulks, the co-author of his new book More Than a Season, Moore discusses the leadership principles, strategies, and decisions that guided the Royals’ transformation into American League champions and World Series darlings. The event marks the public launch of the book, the proceeds from which go to Moore’s C You in the Major Leagues Foundation.
