misc_none Looking at Lincoln: Political Cartoons from the Civil War Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

This national traveling exhibit, available during library hours, explores the Civil War and issues of slavery through political cartoons depicting Abraham Lincoln and his policies. The cartoons are vividly biting and invite the viewer to put aside 21st century assumptions and look at events through the eyes of people living in the era. As Americans continue to debate the legacy of slavery, these cartoons provide a historical reference for current events. This exhibit comes to the library courtesy of the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History.

misc_none 6:30 PM  -  8:00 PM COLLEGE FINANCIAL AID NIGHT Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Significant changes are coming to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) this year. To help students and parents understand how the changes will affect filing for federal financial aid and possibly how much aid they will receive, the Peters Township Public Library will partner with the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) to offer this informative program.

 With the new process, families will be able to begin completing the FAFSA on October 1, rather than January 1. This change more closely aligns the financial aid application process with the admission application process. In order to accommodate this earlier filing schedule, the FAFSA will collect income information from two years prior to the academic year rather than the previous year.

misc_none 7:00 PM  -  8:30 PM ABRAHAM LINCOLN: THE CAREWORN, GENTLE FACE OF WARTIME VIOLENCE Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Presented by: Dr. Elaine Frantz Parsons

Political cartoons, like other popular media, often focused on the person of Abraham Lincoln as a way to think about the inconceivable violence of the Civil War. Depicted as a calm, rational man, slow to anger, physically strong yet ungainly and nonthreatening, Lincoln came to serve as a sign of the controlled and patient wisdom of the north, as opposed to the aggression of the south. As a plain "man of the people", his was the common sense of the common man. This made the fact that he controlled a capacity for violence unknown to the nation seemingly less troubling. This talk will discuss how the figure of Lincoln mediated discussions of violence during the war.

 Dr. Elaine Frantz Parsons is an associate professor of history at Duquesne University. Her most recent book, Ku-Klux: The Birth of the Klan in the Reconstruction Era, was published in January, 2016. She is currently working on a labor history of hired violence workers.

misc_none 7:00 AM  -  8:30 AM STEEL CITY GROOVES: CELEBRATING PITTSBURGH'S JAZZ LEGENDS Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

When you think of jazz towns in America, New Orleans and New York are obvious choices that come to mind, but Pittsburgh also has played an important role in the evolution of jazz – often called the one true American art form. In these cities, music thrives; performers are born and nurtured to their creative maturity, and the hip culture of jazz music is expressed in the language, attitudes and even the dress of each generation. In this program, you will learn about jazz icon Johnny Costa (1922-1996) and how he helped to shape Pittsburgh as a bonafide jazz town. This program is hosted by the Peters Township Public Library in partnership with the Washington Symphony Orchestra.
