Tomorrow night, March 27, at 6 p.m. the Library will host a reception for the exhibit “Distinguished for Their Talents,” Theatrical Portraits by Scranton Master Penman P. W. Costello, 1905-1930, in the 5th floor Heritage Room. Generously sponsored by the Friends of the Weinberg Memorial Library, this event is free and open to the public. P. W. Costello’s great-grandson, Thomas W. Costello, will discuss Costello’s career, and University of Scranton professor Michael Friedman, Ph.D., will speak on Shakespearean performance at the turn of the 20th century.
Last week, WVIA’s ArtScene with Erika Funke featured an interview with Thomas W. Costello and Special Collections Librarian Michael Knies about the exhibition. A recording of their discussion can be found on WVIA’s website: wvia.org/radio/local/artscene/
The exhibit will be on display through April 23 during normal library hours. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 570-941-6341.
