The Swingin' Blue Stars

Saturday, March 9, 2019

Celebrate our 2-month "War Comes Home: The Legacy" exhibition with a performance of swingin' WWII-era hits!

Enjoy an upbeat, fun performance in 3-part harmony of the songs of the WWII era--especially those made famous by groups like The Andrews Sisters and the McGuire Sisters.

Event will take place on the library's Great Hall, on the main floor.

About War Comes Home: The Legacy
Throughout March-April, 2019, the Menlo Park Main Library is hosting a special exhibition and program series exploring separation and reunion over multiple American wars. Showcasing veterans and their families adjusting to civilian life together–or facing the long-term costs of war–this powerful exhibition explores feelings of grief, joy, doubt, and love, bringing the real experiences of war home to all of us.

The traveling exhibition War Comes Home: The Legacy is a partnership between California Humanities, the California State Library and Exhibit Envoy. It is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the BayTree Fund, The Whitman Fund, and the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered in California by the State Librarian.

This free event is made possible thanks to funding from the Friends of the Menlo Park Library.
