In this bittersweet, classic musical drama, the vibrant and beautiful young Fanny Brice (Barbra Streisand) starts out as a bit player on the New York City vaudeville stage, but works her way up to stardom on Broadway. Valued for her vocal and comedic talents by the renowned theater impresario Florenz Ziegfeld (Walter Pidgeon), Fanny thrives, but her relationship with her suave, imprisoned businessman husband, Nick Arnstein (Omar Sharif), is another story. And Directed by William Wyler

This summer, the Montgomery County-Norristown Public Library is bringing all of the elements of the comic conventions in San Diego and Philadelphia to your doorstep! Be sure to dress up as your favorite characters from books, movies, tv shows, and comics to celebrate with the rest of Montgomery County’s fandoms and participate in our cosplay events. There will also be vendor booths, speakers, workshops, and games. Bring your Yu-Gi-Oh!, MTG, and Pokemon cards for playing and trading, and activate Street Pass on your 3DS to collect all those puzzle pieces you’re missing! We will also have 8-player Super Smash Brothers on the Wii U, a creative space for your own works of art, snacks, and tables for independent comic creators. This event is open to all of Montgomery County, regardless of your home library, so don’t miss out on the biggest event in Montgomery County this summer!

From The Franklin Institute’s website:

“The perfect complement to this year’s National Summer reading theme, Every Hero Has a Story!
Explore the stories of and inspiration behind some of our fantastical real-life heroes of flight. From Leonardo da Vinci and Amelia Earhart to the Wright Brothers and the space shuttle, we will learn about the brave men and women who contributed to what we know about the science of flight. Investigate the Bernoulli principle, learn how airplane wings provide lift and discover the science behind the stories. Mechanical birds, hot air balloons, gliders, and even a rocket launch are used to demonstrate the forces of flight and the process our heroes went through to test their powers!”
