“New Rochelle’s Part in the Great War” Slide Presentation - League of Women Voters Coffee and Conversation Friday, November 21, 9:30 am – 11:00 am
Eight months after America entered into World War I, a drama of national proportion arrived at New Rochelle''s doorstep. When the December 1917 crisis began to subside, the city had achieved country-wide fame and praise. Ironically, the rave reviews came on the heels of the community’s highly-publicized fall from grace. City Historian Barbara Davis will present a digital slideshow on the extraordinary story of Recruit Week and New Rochelle’s other contributions to the War effort. Complimentary coffee and light refreshments will be served. Free. Meeting Room.

November 20, 2014
“The Golden Age of Illustration and the Great War” Thursday, November 20, 7:00 – 8:00 pm
Professor George Fernandez, Farmingdale State College, will present a digital slide program exploring the significant period known as the Golden Age of Illustration, and its impact on the WWI efforts. In 1914, posters were already a powerful advertising tool. Four-color printing capabilities allowed them to be printed quickly and inexpensively—an ideal vehicle for spreading wartime propaganda. When America entered the War in April 1917, the country lost no time in producing more of these posters than any other single nation. A number were created by New Rochelle artists – such as Howard Christy Chandler, Coles Phillips, and Joseph Leyendecker. The graphic works now provide a striking visual history of the time and sentiments of our country. Free. This program is presented in partnership with the New Rochelle Art Association and is made possible by the Friends of the New Rochelle Public Library. Ossie Davis Theater.

November 16, 2014
Rick Spencer “To End All Wars: Music of World War One” - Sunday, November 16, 3:00 – 4:00 pm
The folk and popular songs of World War One were patriotic and inspiring. Some were filled with pathos, describing tragedy, loss, and the fears and hopes of those who were affected. In his fascinating program, “To End All Wars: Music of World War One,” Rick Spencer performs both well-known and obscure songs of the period along with a discussion of the issues, events, and personalities of the First World War. Rick Spencer is known internationally for his work as a historian, researcher, singer, songwriter and performer of music in the American folk tradition. He sings and accompanies himself on a variety of instruments including guitar, banjo, concertina, mandolin, dulcimer, button accordion and others. Ossie Davis Theater. Suggested Donation: $2.00
