On Sunday: Wild and Wonderful Winsor Sisters!

Celebrate Women’s Equality Day and discover Radnor’s own Winsor Sisters!

On Sunday, August 25th, 2019, 2-4pm in the Winsor Room, please join us for a special event that will include an inspiring presentation about the Winsor Sisters. Their wild and wonderful ways have left a lasting mark well beyond Radnor. The afternoon will feature memorable anecdotes shared by family members as well as fascinating accounts from primary sources.

The celebration will be highlighted with a Toast to Tenacity in commemoration of Women’s Equality Day, August 26, 1920, the date when women officially gained the right to vote. Because the 19th Amendment was passed during Prohibition, we will toast with grape juice.

This event is free and open to the public.

Partners for this special event are LWV of Radnor Township and Radnor Historical Society.

On Wednesday: A screening of Wild Tales From the Village

Reel Life–A Summer Film Series returns with the 8th screening (2 more after this) on Wednesday, August 14 at 7:00pm in the Winsor Room. We present a film from the Jackson Hole WILD on Tour program that will remind us of the importance of living in harmony with nature.

This 59-minute conservation film (France Televisions and BBC Worldwide), seen from the perspective of secretive animals, is an animal drama that tells the story of a year in the life of an extraordinary village, hidden away in the timeless French countryside. Narrated by Tcheky Karyo, the tale reveals the parallel world of incredibly tiny creatures that live side by side with the unsuspecting humans. Red squirrels, wild boar, and a cunning stone marten all take advantage of the riches of the village, while doing their best not to get caught!

Fences

Set in the 1950’s in Pittsburgh, it is the sixth in August Wilson’s ten-part “Pittsburgh Cycle”. The play follows Troy Maxson, a 53-year-old man who struggles to provide for his wife and son in a time when the Civil Rights Movement has still not come to fruition. Troy used to be an amazing baseball player, but was not able to make it to the Major Leagues due to the color of his skin.

The 2016 film stars Denzel Washington and Viola Davis. Like all of Wilson’s plays, Fences explores the evolving African American experience and examines race relations and many more themes. Running time: 139 min.

I hope to see you there…Pam

Pittsburgh. Pennsylvania. Playwright. Pulitzer. Piano.

Wilson educated himself at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh during school hours, unbeknownst to his mother. Carnegie Library eventually awarded August Wilson an honorary degree because of his frequent use of their facilities–the only degree they have conferred to date.

Perfect.

I hope to see you there…
