Vintage MAD Magazines
Laugh along with selected readings from vintage MAD paperback editions dating from 1954-1970. Reflect on cold-war American pop-culture through the eyes of satirists and cartoonists like Dave Berg, Don Martin, Al Jafee and Mort Drucker. MAD was a pioneer of modern satire, poking fun at film, advertising and media itself, decades before Saturday Night Live or The Simpsons emerged to ridicule these targets.

Readings will be given by the collection owner, Lambertville resident David English. Many of these books are first editions, and were already old when Dave received them in 1978 as a childhood convalescence gift. Dave is excited to share his collection with the community during this unique event. After the reading, participants will have an opportunity to browse and discuss some of these titles on their own.

Linda Kenyon in
"The Greatest Ever:
Babe Didrikson Zaharias' Story"
by Maribeth Theroux

Born Mildred Ella Didrikson in Texas 1911, she became America's greatest female athlete. She combined raw talent, hard work, and an unquenchable thirst for winning in a world in which women were not allowed or encouraged to be athletic, competitive, ambitious or to sweat.

For us today, it is no "big deal" to have women competing in sports. Not many years ago, this was a revolutionary idea - and Babe led the revolution.

In 1953, Babe was diagnosed with cancer. Until she died several years later, she publicized her condition, served as a spokesperson for The American Cancer Society, and raised millions for cancer research while competing as a golfer. Here again she was revolutionary, because cancer was "just not talked about" in the America of the 1950's.
