B.I.L.L. Series News
Our current DVD series from the Teaching Company is “Experiencing America~ A Smithsonian Tour Through American History” This is taught by Dr. Richard Kurin. Dr. Kurin is the museum’s Under Secretary for History, Art & Culture. His PhD is in Archeology. This is a lecture tour of some of the most stunning exhibits at this tremendous museum. The course is arranged thematically rather than chronologically. This 12-week class began on May 5 and will run through August 11.
We also have a summer “How Novel” Book Club scheduled on July 7 and 28. The books for this class will be on the flyer you receive in your mailbox. We are also planning another Jeopardy Game with Tom and Lorraine Callaghan! At press time we are pinning down the date, so look for the flyer in your mailbox in the coming weeks!
This Old Hat
It’s Patty Carver’s first time here at Bay Village so I hope everyone saves the date! She will present: “This Old Hat: The Patriots of Liberty,” on Monday, June 22, at 2:30 p.m.
Historically correct, entertaining and fun, Patty’s tour de force musical presentations have received fantastic reviews. Join us and learn about 4 great women from American History.
You’ll feel like you are with Betsy Ross as she sews the first flag and Deborah Sampson as she tells of her adventure after disguising herself as a man to fight in the Revolutionary War. Harriet Tubman and Amelia Earhart are included in this unique presentation as well … and all by the same performer!
Jenny Aldrich Presents: Mary Cassatt
It’s interesting to note that we have two “educational and entertaining” presentations this month featuring great American women! Patty Carver presents important historical figures and Jenny Aldrich presents the great artist Mary Cassatt. Those of you who attended Jenny’s “O’Keeffe” presentation last year will attest to how wonderful her programs are.
On Thursday, June 18, at 7:30 p.m., Miss Cassatt will share with you the story behind her life and work, the ideas behind her paintings. She was the only American artist to exhibit with the French Impressionists. Known for her frankness and honesty, she describes her days as an artist in 19th century Europe, her relationship with Edger Degas and her struggle for acceptance as an American artist. Join us!
