A Let’s Talk About It series developed by Phil Jordan


Let’s Talk About It is a free, library-based reading and discussion program for people who want to talk with others about what they have read, presented in collaboration with the Maine State Library. Join us for this exciting series in the quest for historical comprehension starting  in the lifetimes of the participants, with partisan accounts of heroic Patriots triumphing over Tory opposition and British tyranny—history written by the winners.

At the Historical Society Barn

Joint Venture with the

Cushing Historical Society 

New York Blues Hall of Fame inductee, Marc Black, will be your guide through an evening of song, storytelling and laughter through these two historically defining decades.  You’ll celebrate wonderful songs as diverse as Itsy Bitsy, Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka -Dot Bikini and Blowin’ in the Wind, as well as tunes by artists ranging from Dean Martin to George Harrison.  In addition to the music and conversation, this popular program features a slide show that’s sure to slide you right back in time.  Marc will also perform his own group’s top forty hit from 1967 when he toured with The Doors, Neil Diamond, The Dave Clark Five and Van Morrison… ‘Happy’ by the ‘Blades of Grass’.
