Monday Movie Series - Magnificent Marilyn: More than a Sex Symbol

She was great-looking, alluring and funny. Yet there was more to Marilyn Monroe than a dumb-blonde bombshell as she was typecast in the 1950s. Since then, she has evolved into an icon and been acclaimed as a gifted comedian and actress. Join us for five Monday evening doses of essential Monroe, with intros by host Victor Zak. The lineup includes "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" (1953), "The Seven Year Itch" (1955), "Bus Stop" (1956), "The Prince and the Showgirl" (1957), and "Some Like It Hot" (1959).

Women's History Month Book and Author talk with local author Mary Walton. Walton's newest book, " A Women's Crusade: Alice Paul and the Battle for the Ballot" marks the 90th anniversary of the 19th ammendment giving women the right to vote. A New Jersey Quaker, Paul was the leader of the militant wing of the suffrage movement from 1913 to 1920. Mary Walton will offer a 45 minute presentation featuring history photos depicting the final dramatic years of the suffrage movement, a David-and-Goliath struggle that ended with the passage of the 19th Ammendment in 1920. Walton is the author of four previous works of nonfiction and was a reporter for the Philadelphia Inquirer for 22 years. She has also written for the New York Times, Washingtonian, the Washington Monthly, and the American Journalism Review. After graduating from Harvard University, and a turn at social work and community organizing, she began her journalism career.
