Saturday, August 3, 2019 – Herman Melville Bicentennial Celebration – Details are still being worked out, but it will involve something very different for LHS, Stephen Collins portraying Herman Melville in the one-man play “Sailing Towards My Father.” It will be presented in the Gardner Earl Chapel in Oakwood Cemetery – a rare opportunity to see a play performed there. There will be discount for members to attend, and regardless the amount requested will not be prohibitive – we hope you’ll attend, after all! There will also be refreshments, and a sale of reasonably-priced used Melville books.
