Fran and friend

July 23: 7:30 PM

Fran Yardley, Bartlett Carry Club

In 1968 Fran and Jay Yardley, a young couple with the pioneering spirit, moved to a remote corner of the Adirondacks to revive the long-abandoned but historic Bartlett Carry Club, with its one thousand acres and thirty-seven buildings. The Saranac Lake–area property had been in Jay’s family for generations, and his dream was to restore this summer resort to support himself and, eventually, a growing family. Fran chronicles their journey and, along the way, unearths the history of those who came before, from the 1800s to the present. Offering an evocative glimpse into the past, Finding True North traces the challenges and transformations of one of the world’s most beautiful, least-celebrated places and the people who were tirelessly devoted to it.

 

July 30:  7:30 PM   Louis Bickford, Confronting the Past: How Societies Deal with Past AtrocityBuilding off the idea of Holocaust remembrance and efforts to confront the past in South Africa, Chile, and other countries, Louis will look at different ways of remembering the past in societies as diverse as Argentina, Bosnia, Canada, Morocco, Peru, and the United States.
