Reverend Richard Walton Hess, retired Rector of St. David’s Episcopal Church in Wayne, will present a historical lecture on eight Main Line families on Friday, October 24, at 7:00pm.
Reverend Hess is visiting from Falmouth, Massachusetts, where he now resides, and has spent months preparing for this special night in the Winsor Room. We consider this a preview to the 300th anniversary of St. David’s Episcopal Church that will be celebrated in 2015. Our visitor promises a lecture that will be very entertaining!
The stately homes of these families will also be part of Hess’ presentation, including the Zantzingers and “The Willows” and the Rosengartens and “Chanticleer.”
We hope to see you there!

This lecture depicts life in field hospitals as seen through the eyes of Anna Morris Holstein, a nurse and a matron during the Civil War.

Philadelphia-born Susan Seidelman was lauded as one of Hollywood’s few “bankable” female directors after the blockbuster box office performance of Desperately Seeking Susan.
Please join us on Sunday, October 12, at 1:30pm, when Susan Seidelman will talk about her life, her films, her inspirations. We’ll be screening Musical Chairs, a romantic tale of two New Yorkers, set in the world of wheelchair ballroom dancing.
Seidelman’s thirty-seven year career includes a Palm d’Or nomination at Cannes and multiple Emmy and Oscar nominations for films starring Meryl Streep, Madonna, and John Malkovich, among many other actors. As a writer and director, she’s been a pioneer among female, American independent filmmakers, starting with her 1982 debut, Smithereens. The women in Seidelman’s films are often trying to find their place in the world, their voice.
And Susan Seidelman directed the 1998 pilot for the groundbreaking “Sex and the City.”–
“It was bold and sassy and more interesting than what I’d seen on TV. Sometimes you get called about something and you think it’s going to be a job, and then sometimes you get called and it turns out to be something you’re really passionate about. I felt like I was the right person to do that…and I like the ending. It’s a little bittersweet.”
I read that Susan attended Drexel University, is 61 years old, and her birthday is in December. Well, that describes me, too. Hey, who wrote this script?
I am lucky to be in the position to invite big names to our Library… it is so thrilling that Susan Seidelman said YES!
See you on Sunday,
