Joseph Hoeffel’s new book   The Iraq Lie: How the White House Sold the WarCome to the Launch Party for Joseph Hoeffel’s new book

The Iraq Lie: How the White House Sold the War

Sunday, September 14, at 2 p.m.
Community Room, Abington Free Library

How deceptive can Washington be? And how damaging is such deceit for our foreign policy? Former Congressman Joseph Hoeffel offers his views on how the Bush White House twisted arms and distorted intelligence to get support for their war. As Iraq now descends into civil war, Hoeffel rejoins the debate with his thoughts on how the war and occupation ruined Iraq and what the US should do now.

“Hoeffel offers readers a personal and researched account of the vote and the events that followed with a focus on the lies and false evidence he says the Bush administration produced about weapons of mass destruction.” 

- Jarreau Freeman, Montgomery News. Published: Tuesday, July 15, 2014.

100% of the net proceeds will benefit the Friends of Abington Libraries.

Joseph M. Hoeffel

Joseph Hoeffel served in public office for 25 years and was a congressman from 1999 to 2004. Hoeffel graduated from Boston University and Temple University Law School.

PHILADELPHIA’S RITTENHOUSE SQUARE

 

Philadelphia's Rittenhouse Square by Robert M. SkalerFrom Swamp to Swank
An Illustrated Lecture by Robert Morris Skaler

Sunday, September 21, 2014 at 2 p.m.
Abington Free Library, Community Room


Register for this free event at: the Library Office, Abington Free Library, 1030 Old York Road, Abington, Pennsylvania 19001, 215-885-5180, ext. 15, kburnham@mclinc.org, or online here.

Rittenhouse Square was the home of Philadelphia Society during America’s Gilded Age.

Established by William Penn in 1682 as the South-West Square and renamed in 1825, Rittenhouse Square and its environs changed from a swampy isolated district of brickyards and workers’ shanties into the city’s most elegant and prestigious neighborhood between 1845 and 1865.

The brownstone and marble mansions on the Square itself were inhabited by the city’s wealthiest and most prestigious families, with names like Weightman, Biddle, Cassatt, Drexel, Van Rensselaer, and Stotesbury.

As Philadelphia’s upper classes fled to the suburbs during the 20th century, their mansions were replaced by skyscrapers or taken over by cultural institutions like the Philadelphia Art Alliance and the Curtis Institute of Music.

While only a few original mansions remain on Rittenhouse Square today, it is still the center of a lively, upscale neighborhood and a prime example of an urban green space. Despite the many changes that have overtaken it, Rittenhouse Square remains just as Jane Jacobs described it in 1961: “A beloved, successful, much-used park, one of Philadelphia’s greatest assets”

... and it was recently named one of the top ten public places in North America.

 

Robert Morris Skaler is a forensic architect and historian, He is the author of West Philadelphia University City to 52nd St, Philadelphia’s Broad Street: South and North, and Society Hill and Old City for Arcadia Publishing. The book’s co-author, Thomas H. Keels, is a Philadelphia writer and historian who has authored Chestnut Hill, and Philadelphia Graveyards and Cemeteries for Arcadia and Forgotten Philadelphia.

A book signing by co-author Robert Skaler will follow the lecture.
