Author and civil rights attorney Bill Horne will give an illustrated talk based on his book, The Improbable Community: Camp Woodland and the American Democratic Ideal. Former campers Pat Lamanna and Mickey Vandow will be on hand to lead singalongs of camp songs. Bill's book will be on sale and available for autographing. Light refreshments will be available. Camp Woodland was founded in 1939 by a group of idealists inspired by the New Deal who created a progressive summer camp for city kids in the Catskill mountains near Phoenicia, NY. They helped to incubate the folk music movement in America.
