Friends Schedule Dana Lecture

The Friends of The Newark Public Library have set Thursday, May 13, as the date for the John Cotton Dana Distinguished Lecture. John T. Cunningham, New Jersey historian and prolific author, has been selected to deliver it. The program will be held in Centennial Hall of the Main Library, beginning 6pm.

Mr. Cunningham is the author of some two thousand magazine articles, twenty historical films and documentaries (including his Emmy-award-winning documentary on Ellis Island), and dozens of books on New Jersey. He recently received The Pierson Pitcher in recognition of his being the Library's "life-long friend, benefactor, and collection builder."

Since seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis, tickets for the May 13 program ($15 donation/each ticket; $10 for current Friends members) should be purchased in advance. Send a check made out to The Friends of The Newark Public Library, in care of The Newark Public Library, P.O. Box 630, Newark, NJ 07101-0630. Be sure to include your telephone number for conformation purposes. Tickets will not be mailed; they will be held at the door the evening of the event. For more information, contact Charles F. Cummings at the Library, (973) 733-7734.
