The Power of Words
A Lecture & Reception
with Gerry Holzman
Sunday, March 23 @ 2:00 pm
In this illustrated lecture, Gerry Holzman, an Islip resident for nearly fifty years, will use portraits and quotations* from the Empire State Carousel to show how well-chosen words can affect the course of history. A highlight will be the first public showing of Gerry’s carving of Pete Seeger, the late folk singer who used the power of song to enrich America. Pete’s portrait will be formally dedicated at the Farmers’ Museum in Cooperstown in late spring. Gerry will have copies of both his books – Us Carvers and The Empire
State Carousel – available for signing. Light refreshments and snacks will be served.
