Sam Allen-"Fire and Ice"

Author and historian Sam Allen will present a riveting one-man show on the complex and troubled life of the poet, Robert Frost, on Saturday, April 8, at 2 p.m., in Rodman Main Auditorium. Throughout a long and productive life, Frost (1874-1963) battled hostile critics and publishers, endured long periods of doubt and depression, and suffered innumerable family tragedies.

History of Christmas Villages

Arlene Schwartz will present a program about the history of Christmas villages on Monday, December 5, at 7:00 p.m. in Rodman Main Auditorium. When Schwartz first started collecting Christmas villages, she purchased a ceramic church and carolers without realizing it was part of a series. This led to a new hobby collecting Christmas villages that lasted several decades. Eventually, the collection became so large she donated it to the Salem Storybook Museum where everyone can enjoy it during the holiday season. This program is free and open to the public.
