The Pit and the Pendulum with Alan Sklar

Oct 03
7:00 pm -
8:00 pm

Join us for a reading of the horror classic, The Pit and the Pendulum by Edgar Allen Poe.

The Pit and the Pendulum, first published in 1842, is the story of the torments endured by a prisoner of the Spanish Inquisition, though Poe skews historical facts. The narrator eloquently describes his experience of being tortured. The story is especially effective at inspiring fear in the reader or listener because of its heavy focus on the senses, such as sound, emphasizing its reality, unlike many of Poe’s stories which feature the supernatural.

Alan Sklar (pictured below) has been a professional voice actor for over 30 years, performing in thousands of radio and TV commercials, documentaries and video projects. He has narrated over 200 audiobooks and is a former announcer at WPIX-TV (Channel 11) in NYC.

Virtual Presentation from César E. Chávez National Monument

Oct 06
6:00 pm -
7:00 pm

Widely recognized as the most important Latino leader in the United States during the twentieth century, César E. Chávez led farm workers and supporters in the establishment of the country’s first permanent agricultural union. His leadership brought sustained international attention to the plight of U.S. farm workers, and secured for them higher wages and safer working conditions. Today, the National Park Service preserves his home, and the headquarters of the United Farm Workers in Keene, California, as César E. Chávez National Monument.

Join us to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with a virtual presentation from César E. Chávez National Monument! Bring your questions about César E. Chávez, Dolores Huerta, the United Farm Workers labor union, and the role of Hispanic and Latinx leadership in the struggle for workers’ rights.
