History’s Bookmark Night: Tuesday, June 25th, 6PM

PBS’ American Experience:  War of the Worlds

Calling all history buffs to join us for our History’s Bookmark Night, our very own history club at the library.

Each month a subject will be discussed through a selected reading list. Join us for an informative evening exploring many different historical events, while sharing opinions, information and anecdotes with others.

Join us for the screening of PBS’ American Experience: WAR of the WORLDS.

What began as a broadcast performance of H.G. Wells’ fantasy, The War of the Worlds, turned into one of the biggest mass hysteria events in U.S. history. PBS’ American Experience examines the elements that together created this frenzy, including our longtime fascination with life on Mars; the emergence of radio as a powerful new medium; and the creative wunderkind Orson Welles, the twenty-three-year-old director of the drama and mischief-maker supreme.
