Tuesday, September 7th at 1:30pm- Mystic Seaport Museum
“As for me, I am tormented with an everlasting itch for things remote. I love to sail forbidden seas, and land on barbarous coasts.” ― Herman Melville, Moby-Dick or, the Whale
Come sail with us and learn about the true tale that inspired Herman Melville to write Moby-Dick. Explore the history of 19th century whaling through the lens of the last wooden whaleship in the world, and one of the star artifacts at Mystic Seaport Museum, the Charles W. Morgan. Learn how and why Americans went to sea for more than a century, in search of the great leviathans and see rare artifacts from the Museum’s collection that connect to American whaling history. We recommended logging in at least 10 minutes prior to the start of the program.

Get to know the National Portrait Gallery. We look forward to sharing the faces and stories of inspiring Americans with you.

Tuesday, September 21st at 1:30pm- FDR Presidential Library and Museum with Jeff Urbin
Books, Boots and Bridles: The Story of the Horse Back Librarians
Join one of our favorites, Jeff Urbin, as he shares the story of the Pack Horse Library initiative, a little known program of the Roosevelt Administration's WPA. Its mission, carried out almost entirely by women, was to deliver and distribute reading materials to the far off corners of Appalachia during the darkest hours of the Great Depression. We recommended logging in at least 10 minutes prior to the start of the program.
Tuesday, September 28th at 1:30pm - Buffalo Bill Center of the West
What’s all the hoot about owls? ( Yellowstone Park)
Many humans have a fascination with owls. Found across the globe, in almost every type of habitat, owls have managed to survive as a group for more than 80 million years. What has allowed owls to thrive and become a vital part in the balance of nature? Using visual aids and a real, live owl, this program will explore the adaptations such as hearing and silent flight that make owls some of the top predators in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and the world. We recommended logging in at least 10 minutes prior to the start of the program.
