LOCATION: Gathering Room
Liberty Bell: The Story Behind it
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

The story behind the Liberty Bell via Zoom

John Cilio takes us through the history of the Liberty Bell.  In the early days of America, bells were a community’s mass communication device. They were rung for fires, funerals, festivals and other important events. The Liberty Bell was brought to Philadelphia in 1752 and weighed more than a ton. When first rung, it was uninspiring and cracked. The colonists melted it down and recast the bell, more than once.  It endures as a national treasure, one of the six symbols most recognized for representing America. Thanks to generous support of The Friends of C. H. Booth Library.

Virtual Author Talk: Long Bright River by Liz Moore
9:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Join us for an evening with New York Times Bestselling author Liz Moore as she discusses her international bestseller, Long Bright River, and her other works

The novel takes place in Philadelphia, where Moore has lived for a decade. She traces the story of two sisters estranged from each other but bonded by their choices. Mickey is a cop, and Kacey lives on the streets in the vice of addiction. When Kacey disappears, Mickey panics over her sister’s safety—obsessed with finding the culprit and her sister before it’s too late.

Drawing on deeply personal volunteer work, Liz Moore spins a story that is both graphically honest and dignified. Long Bright River puts a very human face on the effect that addiction can have on generations of families and communities. 

Liz Moore is the author of four novels, a winner of the 2014 Rome Prize in Literature, and she teaches in the MFA program in Creative Writing at Temple University.

Copies of the book are available at the Circulation Desk. Registration is required. If you are unable to attend the discussion, a recording will be available.
