March 22 Native Nations Storytelling and Myth
On March 22, the library will present a program of storytelling combined with a multi-media presentation on Native Nations. Presenter Juilene Osborne-McKnight is a traditional storyteller or "seanchai" who has studied the storytelling traditions of both Irish and Native American storytellers. She is Chair of the Humanities Department at DeSales University and the author of four historical/myth novels: I am of Irelaunde, Daughter of Ireland, Bright Sword of Ireland and Song of Ireland, which was released to bookstores on Feb. 4. Her books will be available after the presentation for purchase and signing.
March 29 Revolutionary Tea
Museum educator and historian Stacy F. Roth will present a look at tea lore, history, songs, and poetry. This program will include a costumed presentation, complete with living history display and demonstration. Tea and cookies will be provided by the Friends of the Yardley-Makefield Library.
April 5 Show Me the Mummy
Penn Museum educator Jennifer Reifsteck will present an illustrated PowerPoint program that examines the pervasiveness of ancient Egyptian mummies in cinema and in popular culture. Many people do not realize that “mummy movies” actually span nearly 100-years of the history of cinema, and that in Victorian England mummies were the subjects of “high-society” mummy-unwrapping parties. This highly illustrated lecture traces the history of mummy movies and how they changed over time, right up to the present day, and the roles that ancient Egyptian mummies have played in Western civilization will be discussed. Suitable for all age groups.
An all-ages program featuring original music from some of the best local singer songwriters in a close-up, intimate Nashville-style in-the-round. Hosted by US Top 40 Roots Country artist Chuck Schaeffer, with special guests Grammy nominee Jo Wymer and former Yardley resident Christian Roebling.
