Adult Speaker Series-Margaret Montet

September 27, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Margaret bio:

Margaret Montet’s narratives of place are combined with memoir, research, and culture. Much of her work focuses on classical music and opera as music is her first love. She’s a college librarian who has recently earned an MFA in Creative Writing (Creative Nonfiction) from Cedar Crest College. She teaches unusually sophisticated Music History courses to older adults, Effective Speaking to college students, and is in-demand as a speaker on music topics in the Central Jersey/Southeastern Pennsylvania region. Her creative nonfiction has been published in Danse Macabre, The Bangalore Review, Clever Magazine, Pink Pangea, Library Journal, Mature Years, America in WWII, Edible Jersey, The World & I, and other fine periodicals.

About the Program:

World War II changed the lives of Americans serving overseas, but it also impacted those remaining home. This multimedia talk will illustrate the war’s influence on homefront culture, connect concurrent events abroad, and explore limited modes of communication available in the 1940s to unite these two worlds. Listen to Glenn Miller’s “special sound,” admire war effort fashion, save your ration stamps, and join our servicemen and women in the European, Pacific, and African theaters.  This is a free event.
