Historian presents WWII show at library
A special live performance of a re-enacted World War II Armed Forces broadcast takes place Friday, June 3, from 1 to 2 p.m., at the community room of the Bethlehem Public Library, 451 Delaware Ave., Delmar. The free program will be hosted by author and historian the Rev. Gary Ferris.
Ferris has performed his show, “Until It’s Over, Over There,” throughout the Capital Region. Experience what it was like to be at a New York City radio station during the wartime broadcast to the soldiers across the sea and to their loved ones at home. Ferris will hold the role of an Armed Forces officer and host of the show which features letters from soldiers and their sweethearts, hot tunes of the day, advertising and war bond promos, and news from both fronts.
A one-hour coffee and conversation will follow. Event co-sponsor is Bethlehem Senior Projects, Inc.
Future Coffee and Conversation programs at 1 p.m. include “Politics and Patriots,” June 10, featuring the Lost Radio Rounders highlighting historic election years; “Chocolate Delights,” June 17, with storyteller Kate Dudding sharing chocolate-themed tales.
