Crocker, Keith HAMMER HORROR - British horror films of the 1960's History,
Media- Film,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Hammer films of England produced some of the most exciting and colorful horror films ever made. They also created a star factory that included the likes of Christopher Lee (Lord of the Rings) and Peter Cushing (Star Wars). Known for their lavish production values, splashes of gruesome viscera, and strong sense of sensuality, they redefined the genre in a way that still leaves it's mark on the current horror and sci-fi cinema of today. Join me for this introspective journey through the career of Hammer film studios, all the way through their humble poverty row productions of the 1940's through their shot to international recognition as the masters of horror and science fiction in the 1960's. Comes complete with a vintage memorabilia presentation plus a 16mm showing of a digest version of The Curse of Frankenstein (1957). A must when booking for the Halloween season of September/October.

Sommerstad, Patricia In the Footsteps of Ruth Life Skills- Food,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Come with me on a unique adventure that's part of New York City's culinary history! Ruth Reichl was the NY Times food critic from 1993-1999, famous for her “populist” reviews of restaurants that everyone could enjoy and afford. Previous Times reviewers had focused on the stuffy, expensive high-end restaurants, but Ruth changed all that! Of the almost 400 restaurants that she reviewed, over 75 are still in business almost twenty years later! In this workshop, with foreknowledge of her (often very funny) reviews, we will walk in Ruth's footsteps to “visit” seven of them. We'll examine what has changed and what remains the same. Then we'll explore the neighborhoods of each, visiting familiar landmarks and discovering off-the-beaten-path attractions, such as rooftop bars and unusual museums, special interest tours and more. You will leave with seven all-day itineraries, seven Ruth Reichl restaurant reviews, and most likely, several prizes! 1 ½ hours. 21 prizes. Handouts
