Join author Elizabeth Burr Marquard as she discusses her latest book, I come from a place called home, (1930-1985) as part of our Village of Monroeville Sesquicentennial celebration. This volume concludes the 100-year arc of the Seibel family’s story, as recalled by the last surviving member during a final visit to her childhood home in rural Ohio. As the Great Depression plunges the nation into economic turmoil, the Seibels face a difficult decision about the destiny of mentally-ill Mama and the fate of the family farm.
Author and pop culture historian, Marty Gitlin, will bring his new book A Celebration of Animation: the 100 greatest cartoon characters in television history to life. His presentations will include highly entertaining clips--attendees will be amused and captivated by the antics of Sponge Bob SquarePants, Bugs Bunny, and (Marty's personal favorite) Bullwinkle J. Moose. Kids will learn about the characters of old and adults will gain greater knowledge about those their children have embraced. Most importantly, everyone will have a great time!
