Come in Out of the Cold - January Programs



Fred Miller Presents:  He Wrote That?!
Saturday, January 10, 2015     2:00 pm
FREE program:  Seating Limited.

Do you recognize the name Don Raye? Gene De Paul? Tom Adair? Matt Dennis?  Remember Johnny Burke? Harry Woods ring any bells?  Probably not unless one is a fanatical denizen of Tin Pan Alley's numerous, inviting doorways.

HE WROTE THAT?! dramatizes the fact that without the six anonymous and talented gentlemen mentioned, many songs including "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boys" and "Pennies from Heaven", like unborn children, would never have been.

A Thousand Miles Up the Nile:  A Journey Through Modern Ancient Egypt
Presenter:  Dr. Stephen R. Phillips
January 24, 2015     2:00 pm
FREE program:  Seating Limited.

On January 25, 2011 a series of huge public protests began in Cairo’s historic Tahrir Square. In less than a week, the protests spread to cities throughout Egypt, growing quickly into a popular revolution that resulted in the resignation of Egypt’s President of over 30 years, Hosni Mubarak, on February 11. Only five weeks later, on March 24, I left Philadelphia for Egypt as the professional guide for a group of 13 intrepid friends, including two children. This photographic essay takes the audience along with us on our extraordinary 14-day journey through post-revolution Egypt, from Abu Simbel to Old Cairo, from the Temple of Philae to the Pyramids of Giza. We were among the very first tourists to return to Egypt following the revolution - this lecture takes you not only on a virtual tour, it reveals that not everything we read in newspapers, or see on TV, reflects the reality of a distant land.
