Brian Tervenski, retired Instructor of English, offers an approachable introduction to poetry; from Bob Dylan to William Shakespeare, Robert Frost to Ben Jonson. The goal is not, in the words of poet Billie Collins, to “tie the poem to a chair with rope and torture a confession out of it.... to find out what it really means.” The group will read as many good poems as possible and develop techniques to more fully enjoy and appreciate poetry.

Women's Voices and Talents

The Library District, the FDR Presidential Library and Museum, and the Dutchess County Historical Society partner in a series of local programs: 2020 Focus: Women's Voices and Talents.
 
Join the Dutchess County Historical Society at the Cunneen-Hackett Arts Center for the inaugural presentation in the "Women's Voices and Talents" series.  With a century of organized effort of women seeking the right to vote, what were the historical roots of the arguments that were unique to Dutchess County? What was the final tipping point? Is there relevance and are there lessons for today?
 
Another part of the 2020 focus will be an exhibit and discussion of the works of Caroline Morgan Clowes, a LaGrange artist who was featured at the 1876 Centennial Celebration in Philadelphia as a member of the Hudson River School of painting.  Programs will investigate her impact on the School, her decline from public recognition after her death, and the DCHS work towards the restoration of her paintings and legacy.

Brian Tervenski, retired Instructor of English, offers an approachable introduction to poetry; from Bob Dylan to William Shakespeare, Robert Frost to Ben Jonson. The goal is not, in the words of poet Billie Collins, to “tie the poem to a chair with rope and torture a confession out of it.... to find out what it really means.” The group will read as many good poems as possible and develop techniques to more fully enjoy and appreciate poetry.

The Gomez Mill House in Marlboro has a remarkable history that dates back over 300 years. This house and mill has a strong connection with Jewish history in the Hudson Valley. Site Manager Richard Rosencrans Jr. will share the history of the place and some of its notable owners, including Martha Gruening, who was a lawyer and a suffragist in the early 20th century. Q and A will follow. Gomez Mill House is just one of the many historic sites and museums that you can access for free through our MAP pass program.
