Author E.L. Doctorow gave American literature a new perspective with his 1975 book Ragtime. Some critics called the best-selling historical novel a montage, a kaleidoscope of personas, while others called it a tapestry of our country’s history. It is this historical tapestry aspect that beckons Bristolians and the public to Bristol Riverside Theatre for the musical Ragtime, this March, and to the collaboration with the Grundy Library.
“Ragtime and Our Immigrant Story” will provide the public with the opportunity to delve into their own family history with a series of programs that will inform people about the musical, teach them how to document family history using oral history techniques, and provide recording sessions to memorialize their family story.
On February 5, 2015, Bristol Riverside Theatre’s Artistic Director Keith Baker will host an introduction and discussion of the groundbreaking novel and musical at the Grundy Library at 6:30 pm. Award-winning producer of both public radio and video documentaries Dr. Charles Hardy III (of West Chester University) will lead an oral history workshop on Saturday, February 7, 2015 at the Grundy Library. Participants will learn how to collect their family’s history and stories in this age of digitization. Then, on Saturday, February 21, 2015 and Saturday, March 7, 2015, from 11am to 4pm, by appointment, the Grundy Library will host oral history recording sessions with staff and volunteers on hand for assistance and guidance. These recordings will be added to the Library’s permanent collection and will be edited into a video, which will run on both organizations’ websites and in the lobby of the theatre during the run of the musical, from March 17, 2015 to April 12, 2015.

Coming in March – Kellyanne Schaefer
Are you a Delegation Virgin?
When thinking about delegating, do you sound something like this?:
- I don’t have anyone to do…..
- No one can do this quite like me…..
- You just don’t understand…
- It’s going to take me forever to show someone else what to do…
- I like things perfect…
- I tried that before and it didn’t go very well…
- I don’t know where to even start…
Kellyanne Schaefer can help. Her focus is teaching her clients the ‘How To’s’ of delegating. “Learning how to delegate is like exercising!! When you first start out, you might be sore afterwards, but the more you do it the stronger you become! And man ohhh man… it feels so good to see how your life transforms.”
Kelly will discuss a very simple way to literally “highlight” the areas and tasks in your life that you can focus on getting support for. That support can come in the form of family, spouse, co-workers, professionals or of course a personal concierge… But the key is to first just sit back and assess where you’re spending your time and how you can let go of some of the things to allow more space for the more important stuff!
Guided tours of Cairnwood Estate reveal the personal history of this grand Beaux Arts country house designed by the renowned architectural firm, Carrère and Hastings.

John, his wife Gertrude, and their family lived in the house from its completion in 1895 until John’s death in 1916. Tour participants discover the private side of the family and its integral role in founding the Bryn Athyn community.

TUESDAY-FRIDAY WITH 2:30 PM TOUR OR BY APPOINTMENT | WEEKENDS 1:00 – 4:30 PM
This exhibition features textiles hand-stitched by the Cuna Indians along the Caribbean coast of Panama. Molas are reverse appliqué panels made for the front and back of blouses worn by Cuna women. Each mola in this exhibition illustrates a story from the Bible—from the Garden of Eden to the Ascension of Jesus Christ into heaven. Molas probably originated with the custom of body painting, traditionally done by Cuna women as early as the 17th century. By the 19th century this painting was replaced by textiles, perhaps because Christian missionaries insisted that the Cuna wear clothing.
Molas are made by women and female children, using only a needle, scissors and thimble. The Cuna have selectively adopted certain aspects of Western civilization, but continue to maintain their indigenous lifestyle and traditions. Many belong to thriving Christian congregations, and biblical themes are often depicted in their textiles.
The molas in this exhibition are on loan from the collection of Sandra and Bob Bowden.
