GLORIA JOHNSON DONATES CHAPMAN PAINTING TO THE LIBRARY

This painting, "Music Lesson", by Charles S. Chapman NA, was donated to the Morristown Public Library by Gloria Scott Johnson.  I have learned so much because of this painting!  Charles himself is standing, his wife Ada at the piano, and sitting on the left is his Aunt Julia, who was at Fords Theater the night President Lincoln was shot.  Wowsa!

FOREIGN FILM POTLUCK

This event is a potluck, bring something to share if you can, but please come anyway if you have forgotten to make something - these things always have much too much food!
