 Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts’ Chief Conservator and President of Radnor Historical Society Mary McGinn, describes the science of art restoration and conservation…

An Evening with Travis Walton

I am really looking forward to this event. It will take place on Monday evening, October 30, 2017 at 7:30PM at the Library. 

Travis Walton will be here to talk about his experience, answer questions, and his book will be available for purchase. Then he’ll head home to Snowflake, Arizona. Don’t you love that? It was founded in 1878 by Erastus Snow and William Jordan Flake, Mormon pioneers. 

On Sunday, I will attend the documentary film screening of Travis: The True Story of Travis Walton at Jack M. Barrack Hebrew Academy in Bryn Mawr. More about that can be found online. The screening does benefit Radnor Studio 21 and I hope I get to meet Travis in advance of his visit to our Library.

 Travis is local filmmaker and MUFON leader Jennifer Stein’s Onwinges production and it has won awards.

Please note that the time is 7:30 PM, not 7:00 PM and it will take place at the REcollection, our temporary space at 167 W. Lancaster Avenue in Wayne.

Please call me if you have any questions– 610-687-1124.

Hope to see you soon!

Podcast for Stoneleigh: A Natural Garden

A huge crowd last night for Stoneleigh: A Natural Garden at Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens. Many thanks to Tom Ellis (Radnor Historical Society) for recording this event.


Radnor Library invited Jenkins, Radnor Conservancy and Radnor Historical Society to partner with us for Ethan Kauffman’s sneak preview for Natural Lands’ stately addition to their long list of preserves in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.


Left to right, Ethan Kauffman, Director of Stoneleigh, Nancy Fischer, Radnor Historical Society, Gretchen Groebel, Radnor Conservancy, Pam Sedor, Radnor Memorial Library, Dr. Harold Sweetman, Director of Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens on October 25, 2017 to welcome Natural Lands to the Main Line!

Many thanks to everyone who attended, especially those 40+ who stood in the lobby because we ran out of chairs…although we did have plenty of spiced wafers and cider!


Ethan Kauffman, Director of Stoneleigh: A Natural Garden on October 25, 2017 at Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens

I am so proud that we were out in full force to let Natural Lands know how much we appreciate all their efforts to preserve Stoneleigh. Ethan said they will open to the public on Mother’s Day, 2018. 

Here you go…enjoy!



Pam at Mariton in Easton, PA

Natural Lands, you rock! This was taken in June, 2017, working my way through the list of preserves. Pretty sure this one is Mariton, near Easton, PA.
