The Post Library Association|
Exhibits and Events
The Post Library Association is devoted to planning
many cultural and educational functions for
the B. Davis Schwartz Memorial Library. In the quarter
century that the Post Library Association has been in
existence it has contributed greatly to the cultural life on
the LIU Post campus in general and in the Library specifically.
The Hutchins Gallery has become a
showcase of fine art with its wide variety of beautiful art exhibits
that have been uniformly praised for their high quality.
The PLA "Friday Night Programs", a dinner and
lecture series, have attracted a wide array of
nationally and internationally renowned scholars.
Other events sponsored by the PLA include the
annual book sale, various booktalks, poetry readings
and special events, such as museum and opera trips.

New York Heroes: Lincoln's Cooper Union Speech
- Dr. Daniel Marrone, lecture.
- Local author Dr. Daniel Marrone will be here to discuss his recently published book,
New York Heroes: Herkimer, Lincoln, TR & LaGuardia.
New York Heroes consists of four in-depth biographical essays on
Nicholas Herkimer, Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, and Fiorello La Guardia as well as others.
These individuals faced formidable obstacles and while their accomplishments differ,
they all made an indelible mark of New York State history. His presentation will cover the chapter
leading up to the Civil War, Lincoln's election of 1860, and Lincoln's Cooper Union Speech.

Lost in Laughter with Laurel & Hardy
- Keith J. Crocker, lecture and screening.
- Keith J. Crocker returns to talk about this classic comedy team, who made the transition from
silent to sound films. Long before Abbott & Costello,
Laurel & Hardy left audiences laughing
in the aisles with their subtle yet sure brand of slapstick and tom foolery.
In this loving tribute, we will see one of their classic comedy shorts, either The Music Box
or a condensed version of Sons of the Desert.
And, as always, a biographical overview and memorabilia show will round out the proceedings.
- Programs in the library are free and open to the public.
Programs begin at 8:00 p.m. in the Instructional Media Center (IMC)
Computer Lab on the lower level of the library.

Long Island, the Gold Coast, and Hollywood Lecture
- Keith J. Crocker, lecture and screening.
- As part of a special event for LIU's Homecoming Weekend,
Keith J. Crocker will give a detailed account of the West Coast's view of the
East Coast by utilizing clips from vintage Hollywood films.
A Gold Coast mansion could either be the scene of a storm swept murder mystery or
provide the perfect setting for a Marx Brothers comedy, but the beauty and wonder of Long
Island will forever be captured by the heyday of tinsel town and the representations vary in
interesting ways. This event is sponsored by the Office of Alumni Relations.
Sunday, October 11, at 11:00 a.m. in the Gold Coast Cinema, Hillwood Commons
RSVPs are appreciated, but walk-ins are welcome!
Contact Alexandra.Janvey@liu.edu to RSVP or for more info.
