Next week on Wednesday, August 7th at 7 PM, the first of three Center for Mark Twain Studies at Elmira College lectures begins at The Park Church. The series will continue on the following two Wednesday evenings – August 14 and 21. There will be a reception and a tour of the historic Park Church after the final lecture on August 21st.
In addition, a special performance on Saturday, August 17th at 2 PM at the Church, locally sponsored by the Friends of Woodlawn Cemetery, will be of interest to those who love local history. “Yours, for the Oppressed,” is a play about the conflicting perspectives of the Abolitionist Movement and the heart-stopping experiences of those involved in the Underground Railroad. This is a premiere traveling the state with actors from the Black Theatre Troupe of Upstate New York.
No tickets are required, all four of these events are offered free of charge, and donations will gratefully be accepted at the door.
