The Boulder Senior Center
presents

"Hammering Out Human Rights" - Eleanor Roosevelt at the United Nations

March 14, 2018
12:45-1:45 PM

Boulder West Senior Center
909 Arapahoe, Boulder, CO.

Dubbed "First Lady of the World" by President Truman, Eleanor Roosevelt speaks of the ground-breaking, grueling, tempestuous, and eventually triumphant development of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a Magna Carta for humankind. Along the way, we gain insights to what brought Mrs. Roosevelt to be at the United Nations in the first place and the fears that are currently (in 1950) stoking animosities between the Soviet Union and the United States. You may be surprised to find out why Human Rights are important to your life and to the strength of the country. One-hour program includes an in-character monolog, a Q&A with Mrs. Roosevelt, and a Q&A with the presenter.

Free and open to the public. Registration requested. To register click here.

The Eisenhower Public Library District in Harwood Heights, IL


welcomes you to hear
Clara Barton: Patriot Angel

speak on
Saturday March 17, 2018
2:30 pm

Eisenhower Public Library District
4613 N Oketo Ave
Harwood Heights, IL 60706

Let's travel back to the late 1880s. Miss Clara Barton is well known as a public speaker describing the contributions that led to her being dubbed "the Angel of the Battlefield" during the Civil War. There she defined her role as filling the gap "between the bullet and the hospital." But she is also ready to describe her activities after the war: First establishing and running an "Office for Missing Soldiers" — creating the first of what we now call a "Missing in Action" list; Later serving under the International Red Cross and eventually founding the American Red Cross — an undertaking that demanded educating the public, lobbying with Congress, and working with the press — all from the disadvantage-point of being a woman in a society that assigned very little power to her gender.

Hear Clara's tribute to those who serve in our armed forces - soldier, veteran, and their families. Find out how she worked her way through government red tape both to care for the wounded on the battlefield and years later to convince the United States government to bring the Red Cross to America. Her fortitude under fire and tenacious dedication to the cause of humanity stand as a role model for all time.

Free and Open to the Public.
For more information call (708) 867-7828.

The Longmont Public Library


invites you to Celebrate
the 200th Anniversary of the publication of Frankenstein
at

Mary Shelley Speaks

Thursday March 22, 2018
7:00 pm

Longmont Public Library
409 4th Ave
Longmont, CO 80501

Teen-age mother, behind-the-scenes supporter of social reform, romantic, and scholar, English writer Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley (1797-1851) may be best known as the author of Frankenstein, but there is much more to be learned about her, both personally and psychologically. Re-live the process of an author’s creation. See how Mary painted her own personal experience with a vivid imagination to build this original and enduring work of science fiction.

Program consists of a monologue in-character, followed first by a Q&A conversation with “Mary Shelley” and then by a Q&A with the scholar/presenter. In Frankenstein, Mary Shelley raises ethical questions that are, if anything, more pertinent today than they were in her lifetime: the Ethics of applying our scienti c knowledge, and our Social Responsibility to the abandoned members of society.

Free and Open to the Public
