Our next program will be on October 9th at 2 o'clock!

Come and enjoy an afternoon of deeply moving, poignant and hauntingly beautiful poetry as we watch and listen together in the Museum to the virtual presentation from Hungary by Dr. Judit Havas.

This hour-long performance will be in Hungarian and will include a medley of poetry and literature readings from lesser known poets of the 1950s.
The focus will be on poets whose lives and poetic works were deeply influenced by the turbulent and repressive times in Hungary, and include Bertók László, Illyés Gyula, and Csoóri Sándor.

The lecture will be interactive as participants in attendance in the Museum will have the opportunity to virtually comment and ask questions of Dr. Havas at the end of the lecture.

 Dr. Judit Havas teaches Hungarian literature, public speaking and elocution at the Department of Literary Scholarship at the Eötvös Loránd University.


In February, 2020, the Museum received a grant from the Ohio History Connection, which allowed us to purchase software that will enhance our ability to catalog our collection, and incorporate donor and support information into one database. As a recipient organization, we are please to announce that this project is made possible in part by the Ohio History Fund, a grant program of the Ohio History Connection. The Ohio History Fund is made possible by voluntary donations of state income tax refunds, sales of Ohio History “mastodon” license plates, and other donations.
