During World War II, nothing could light up the face of a military man more than the sight of a 
beautiful girl from back home. Pin-up art became a significant and rich part of 20th century
culture, and essential to the war effort. This illustrated lecture, presented by 
Louise Cella Caruso, will bring light to the pretty girls reminiscent of the sweethearts the
soldiers left behind - images that adorned aircraft and carried American popular culture onto 
foreign shores.

Long Island Reads

Long Island Reads

Sunday, April 19
at 2:00 pm

Each April during National Library Week, book lovers in Nassau and Suffolk counties come together to
read the same book in an island-wide initiative called Long Island Reads. The Library is pleased to 
showcase this year's author, Alice Hoffman and her novel,
The Museum of Extraordinary Things.

Mesmerizing and illuminating, Alice Hoffman's The Museum of Extraordinary Things is the story of an
electric and impassioned love between two vastly different souls in New York during the volatile first
decades of the 20th century. With its coloful crowds of bootleggers, heiresses, thugs and idealists,
New York itself becomes a riveting character as Hoffman weaves her trademark magic and
masterful storytelling.

Tickets are not required. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
