The 50th Anniversary of The Beatles' Abbey Road
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

October 1, 2019 marks the 50th Anniversary of the release of Abbey Road - the last album the Beatles recorded.  After the turmoil of The White Album and Let It Be, the Beatles put their differences aside to record one of their most popular albums that still sounds fresh and vital today.  Each member shone brightly from Lennon's funky "Come Together" to Harrison's sublime "Something' and "Here Comes the Sun" to McCartney's galloping Side 2 Medley – a virtual rock 'n' roll symphony.  Using audio visual content, we'll review the stories behind the album's best-known songs and celebrate the Beatles final gift to music lovers all over the world.

Presented by Gary Wenstrup, who teaches Beatles courses in Continuing Education at College of DuPage and Triton College while also lecturing at libraries.

Sally Rand: American Sex Symbol
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Local author and historian William Hazelgrove is back to promote newest book, the very first biography of Sally Rand. She would pave the way for every sex symbol to follow from Marilyn Monroe to Lady Gaga, but in the end she would die penniless and in debt. She broke the mold in 1933, by proclaiming the female body as something beautiful and taking it out of the strip club with her ethereal fan dance. She was a poor girl from the Ozarks who ran away with a carnival, then joined the circus, and finally made it to Hollywood where Cecil B. Demille set her on the road to fame with silent movies.

Women of WWII: Serving Soldiers at the Whistle Stop Canteen
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Join us for a historical presentation by local author Barb Warner Deane on the women who helped serve troops traveling in trains across the country on their way to World War II. 

After Pearl Harbor was attacked, American troops started traveling across the U.S. for recruitment, induction, training, and deployment. Most servicemen had never been far away from home and certainly not on an over-crowded troop train, destination unknown. You may have heard of the Stage Door Canteen or Hollywood Canteen, where celebrities offered food, dancing, and entertainment to our servicemen. But the real surprise came at train stations all across the country, such as North Platte, NE, Dennison, OH, Reno, NV, and Connellsville, PA, where local women, children, and senior citizens sacrificed their own food and ration stamps to provide a morale boost to hungry, homesick, and frightened soldiers. Come learn about how the Greatest Generation pulled together to help our troops.

US-Cuba Relations 1898-2018: What They Didn't Teach Us In School
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

In 1898 the US declared a successful war against Spain to expel that country from the Americas and begin its exploitation of Cuba.

Lewis & Clark's Trail (outbound in 1804 and 1805)

This presentation features photography from the length of the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail and tells the overall story of the epic 8000-mile expedition from the Mississippi to the Pacific and back, but it focuses mainly on the outbound portion of the journey. Drawing on Lynn’s modern travels by mountain bike, the program places special emphasis upon the Corps of Discovery’s difficult 400-mile crossing of the Bitterroot Mountains in today’s Montana and Idaho, the last 180 miles down the Columbia River and along the Pacific Coast in today’s Washington and Oregon, and on to winter quarters at Astoria, the saltworks at Seaside, and over Tillamook Head to its point of farthest reach at Cannon Beach, Oregon. 

John Lynn of Peoria has photographed all 2400 Illinois cities, villages, and towns. He has also hiked, biked, and canoed enough historic and scenic trails, roads, and rivers in North America and Britain to circle the globe. He has now shared his experiences with over 4000 audiences in three countries.
