Media- Other,
Science
Did you ever see a UFO? Did the United States Government ever investigate the “flying saucer” phenomenon? What about the rumors about Roswell, or a recovered UFO and alien bodies in 1947? What are the general types of UFOs? Are they all discs? Are there aliens? What do they look like? Can life exist on other planets? This presentation is an attempt to answer some of these questions and perhaps to inform young adults about this popular culture subject. Originally created as part of the Summer Reading Program in 2015, or “Spark and Reaction” at Capital Region libraries, this presentation is intended to inform and entertain teenagers ages 13-18. Teachers or librarians can encourage further critical thinking on the subject and direct young adults to research this highly controversial subject. This presentation can be offered during Halloween, or “scary” Halloween parties or fun activities.

Fiske, David Broadway Goes to War: "Soldier Shows" of World War I History,
Media- Other
During the first World War, presentations called "soldier shows" allowed theatrical producers to not only entertain the public, but provide a show of patriotism. Some of these shows were put together by individuals who served in the military (such as Sergeant Irving Berlin), though others had no military background. The shows were light entertainment, featuring skits and musical numbers, and utilized many performers who were actually in the service. Proceeds from soldier shows went to projects intended to improve the lives of those serving in the armed forces of the United States.
