CANCELED: Senior Happening: Lecture-In-Song "They Wrote the Words, Part 1"

The current public health concern involving the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is continuing to unfold.  The Library has been working closely with local and state authorities to make decisions that prioritize public health and safety. Per CDC guidelines for public gatherings, out of an abundance of caution, most events will be canceled or postponed until such time as more information is available and health officials provide updated guidance. At this time, these are only precautionary measures as we consider and care for the safety of our patrons.  We are working on rescheduling the program in the future.

They Wrote the Words celebrates a number of high-caliber lyricists not as celebrated or prolific as Oscar Hammerstein II, Lorenz Hart, Ira Gershwin, Dorothy Fields, Alan Jay Lerner or Johnny Mercer. This first installment honoring and examining some great, lesser-known wordsmiths includes brief portraits and the best songs of Otto Harbach, Ted Koehler, Leo Robin and Arthur Freed.

Bring your lunch and enjoy a social hour, with coffee and dessert, starting at 12:00 pm. The program begins at 1:00 pm.

Registration is required for Senior Happening. Livingston residents will be given first preference to register, beginning on June 1st.

If seats are available, guests from other Essex County towns may register starting on June 12th.

A shuttle bus from LSCC to Library is available. It leaves LSCC at 11:30 am.  You must call Nell to schedule transportation for the bus at (973) 535-7925 Ext 1.

"Made possible by funds from the Essex County Division of Cultural Affairs, a partner of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts."
