Sunday screening with Sam Katz, Executive Producer at History Making Productions

On Sunday, November 7 at 2:30pm, Mr. Sam Katz will come to Radnor Memorial Library to screen a pilot episode of a planned series on Philadelphia history. Sam Katz is the Executive Producer at History Making Productions in Philadelphia. The 30-minute pilot episode of Philadelphia–The Great Experiment will be followed by a discussion led by Katz, when he will be interested in hearing your comments. The doors will open at 2:00pm and the event should be over by 4-4:15pm.

You might have read about these screenings in the Philadelphia Inquirer a few weeks ago. Big story on the front page.

(Responses by the audiences who have seen this…”stunning” , “genuinely moving”)

 Following the pilot, an 18-minute film on Bishop Richard Allen will be shown. This year is the 250th anniversary of Allen’s birth. It was just in June, 2010, that Radnor Township dedicated a new park (at the end of Brooke St.) in the Bishop’s honor.

Due to space limitations, reservations are requested. Please register in person, or at the Library website radnorlibrary.org, or call the Library, 610-687-1124.

This is NOT 1776…it’s 19th century Philadelphia, when the remains of President Lincoln passed through Philadelphia and black cloth was hung from almost every house…
