Upcoming Programs

Because of Covid-19, we cancelled all of our spring programs. We are, however, able to offer two programs this fall via Zoom — due to a wonderful collaboration with the Westwood Public Library!

Tuesday, October 13, 7:30 p.m.: 13 Days in October/The Untold Cuban Missile Crisis, Michael Tougias
We, in collaboration with the Westwood Public Library, will be hosting noted author, Michael Tougias. Michael will talk about the strategic wisdom of John F. Kennedy and the U-2 aerial spy program during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Tuesday, November 10, 7:30 p.m.: Tracing Your Family History, Joy Marzolf
Joy’s presentation is also possible because of the Westwood Public Library.  Marzolf will take us on a virtual adventure through the past. Joy began by trying to learn about her mother’s early family history and ended up discovering more about her ancestors — and other local notables than she ever expected! Joy will also talk about her methodology and the resources she uses.
