According to the Program Director for the Jefferson County Public Library, the highlighted program for March is the Bicentennial Speaker Series presentation, “Movies and Music in Everyday Life” by Skip Dine Young, professor of psychology at Hanover College and Bill Bettler, professor of communication, also from Hanover College
This will take place on March 15th at 6:30pm at the Madison Public Library.
This presentation will explore the ways in which the popular culture that surrounds us—movies, TV and music—can seep into our personal experience and become “equipment for living.”
Dine Young and Bettler will present examples from film (Star Wars and Indiana sports movies like Hoosiers, Rudy, Breaking Away and Madison) and music (the Louisville-based band, My Morning Jacket & Bob Dylan), and encourage the audience members to share examples of their own.
The Bicentennial Speaker Series presents experts speaking about timely topics on Thursdays.
