June 20:   THE HIRSCHFELD CENTURY
Join David Leopold as he takes us on a tour of the Hirschfeld Century, an 82-year era in which Al Hirschfeld both recorded and defined so much of popular culture, especially through his drawings of productions on Broadway and in Hollywood.  Leopold spent 25 years studying Hirschfeld’s work, served as his Archivist, and is the Creative Director of The Al Hirschfeld Foundation.  Leopold’s new book has been called “an instant classic” by the Washington Post, and has met with acclaim in NYC and beyond.  His illustration presentation will show you rarely-seen images, as well as old favorites.

July 11:  OSCAR HAMMERSTEIN IN BUCKS COUNTY
William Hammerstein will share the life and music of Oscar Hammerstein as we celebrate his 122nd birthday!  Oscar and Dorothy Hammerstein moved to Highland Farm in 1940. When Richard Rodgers stopped by for lunch, a beautiful 19-year partnership was born, resulting in such classics as SOUTH PACIFIC, CAROUSEL, KING AND I, and SOUND OF MUSIC. Come out for a lovely evening of story and song….and birthday cake!

July 25:  A DIFFERENT APPROACH TO POETRY AND ART
Al Ferber takes a unique approach to both his poetry and technique as an abstract painter.  Al writes in the third person, which gives him freedom from self-consciousness in his poetry. His brushless scraping method of painting creates new mixes and forms of color.

August 8:  LANGHORNE: CROSSROADS OF HISTORY
Langhorne resident and historian Florence Wharton will share little-known facts from her new book about the geography, history, and people of Langhorne, all of which shaped the little borough that we know and love today.  Particular emphasis will on the influence of early Quakers and the women of Langhorne who became pioneers in the fields of medicine and education.

August 22:   BUCKS COUNTY ADVENTURES
Writer Carl LaVO explores the histories and mysteries across Bucks County. We’ve all been delighted by weekly newspaper accounts of Carl’s explorations.  Now hear first-hand some of the amazing stories and little-known facts that he’s uncovered, and learn how he conducts this research.  You’ll come away with many places in our beautiful county that you will want to visit!
