50 People Who Made Bangor Great

$10

with Richard Shaw

Calendar Oct 24, 2019 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

Since being settled in 1769, Bangor has seen more than its share of gifted residents. Best-selling authors have included Christina Baker Kline and Stephen and Tabitha King, while politicians Hannibal Hamlin, William Cohen and John Baldacci have stood in the national spotlight. Waldo Peirce and J. Normand Martin let their art do the talking, while broadcasters Bill Green and George Hale never seem to run out of story ideas. Educators Mary Snow and Lillian Wall broke the 20th century's glass ceiling, while musicians Dick Curless and Woody Woodman kept the Queen City singing. Longtime history seminar presenter Richard Shaw delves into his home town's past and present to showcase 50 personalities, including legendary lumberjack Paul Bunyan, to prove that people make a community as much as buildings and bridges. A related video will be screened in the seminar's second hour.
