Spring Speaker Series – Bob Ferguson!!!

Come one, come all to Bob Ferguson’s  “AMERICA’S HISTORY, PEOPLE AND CULTURE ON                Ferguson-300x258  POSTAGE STAMPS.”    

Event is Tuesday, April 7, 2015,  7:00 pm at the Blair Public Library

With the aid of a large-screen TV display of high-resolution stamp images, Ferguson chronicles the history of space exploration illustrated on stamps; exhibits stamps that honor the famous and introduce the not-so-famous to the public; discusses how stamps advance the understanding of diverse cultures: Native, African and Hispanic Americans; and presents pop culture milestones and icons on stamps. For general audiences – stamp collectors may also be interested.
