Lapham Meeting Room and on Zoom
Join us for this special author event with Mr. John Lancaster, who will discuss his book and provide a visual presentation about the fascinating but little-known piece of aviation history, which began right here on Long Island! John Lancaster’s The Great Air Race reclaims one of the most important moments of American aviation history: the transcontinental air race of October 1919 from New York and San Francisco. Bringing the pilots and the race’s impresario, Billy Mitchell, to vivid life, journalist and amateur pilot John Lancaster captures the challenges of flying in that almost prehistoric age.

Seeds of Broadway: Always, Wilde
01/14/2023 @ 2:30 pm
Lapham Meeting Room
A new comedy starring Will Lyman, Collin Kelly-Sordelet, and Paul L. Coffey. By Grant MacDermott. Directed by Marshall Jones III. History tells us that on a cold day in January 1882, a young not-yet-quite-famous Oscar Wilde ventured to meet an aging Walt Whitman at his home in Camden, New Jersey. The public meeting downstairs is well documented, but when the two men go upstairs alone, facts become fiction, and speculation might be the truth after all. Each Seeds of Broadway performance is an opportunity to enjoy live theater produced by Broadway professionals and performed by professional actors, all of whom appear courtesy of the Actor’s Equity Association.
