Lewisburg Music in the Park
Aug 20 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

The Lewisburg Arts Council is pleased to announce the 18th season of the summer concert series Music in the Park.  BIG change this year: the concerts will begin at 7:00 pm in Hufnagle Park (Market Street, between 5th and 6th Streets) in downtown Lewisburg. That’s ½ hour early, in the hopes that more families will be able to join us, and we’ll have light for extra music in all of the concerts in the series. This year Heeter’s Ice Cream is bringing their truck from Riverside with their delicious soft-serve ice cream for sale; part of the proceeds benefits the Friends of Music in the Park endowment fund. Come early, bring your blanket or chairs, and enjoy a wonderful summer evening!

Travel in Popular Culture with Paul Halpern
Aug 21 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Do you believe in time travel and parallel universes? On Thursday, August 21 at 7:00 pm at the Public Library for Union County, Paul Halpren explores the treatment of these ideas in popular media.

• From time to time: a novel by Jack Finney
• The impossible lives of Greta Wells by Andrew Sean Greer
• Confessions of a Jane Austen addict : a novel by Laurie Viera Rigler
• The Time Machine by H. G. Wells
