Village Discussion Group: Ann Morgan's War (4:00 PM)
Topic: Ann Morgan’s War, led by Village member, Ann McCrea.
Watch the video, Ann Morgan's War, ahead of time and then join the in-person conversation in the library at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church library. Registration is required by Friday, Oct. 1.
The film documents the little known story of how Anne Morgan became an influential force in the recovery of Picardy, in northeastern France, which was devastated by Germany in World War I. It chronicles how she used her social, financial, and political resources to create effective programs for the residents and their values. She was acknowledged not only by France’s political leaders, but by the people her programs served. Participants are encouraged to watch the film in advance. Ann will introduce the film, and follow with questions to generate discussion.
Ann McCrea, a Newburyport resident for 41 years, has been a member of The Village for four years. Having retired from teaching clay sculpting to children in her Pleasant Street studio and libraries, Ann began studying and writing poetry. Recently she has combined her haiku with photos in a series of accordion books. She has taught haiku to young people and adults, including a series for Village members.
