Audrey Hepburn:
An Illustrated Lecture

A special program brought to you by the Friends of the Library.

Audrey Hepburn was a major cultural icon in film, fashion and became a special ambassador for UNICEF. Audrey was the most acclaimed young ballerina in the Netherlands. Severe malnutrition from World War II stunted her growth and made it impossible for her to pursue ballet. So Audrey turned to acting. She became the lady women have emulated for over half a century. She won an Oscar for best actress in the film Roman Holiday. Her portrayal of Sister Luke in The Nun’s Story is one of the greatest on screen performances. From the 1950’s to the 1960’s she was the screen’s foremost embodiment of grace. She captured the epitome of mid 1950’s elegance with seemingly carefree ease. Marty will discuss the following films that Audrey Hepburn appeared in:
Roman Holiday, Funny Face, The Nun’s Story, My Fair Lady and Breakfast at Tiffanys.

Carlos Pavan will perform live, featuring Argentine Tango/Folklore Classical Guitar (traditional & contemporary) and will allow us to post the performance video for two weeks after. Argentine-born/Brooklyn (Park Slope) based concert guitarist & composer Carlos Pavan arrived in New York in 2000 to pursue musical studies. Since then, he’s performed at well-renowned venues such as Lincoln Center, New York City Center, New England Conservatory Jordan Hall (Boston), Brooklyn Borough Hall, as well as internationally.

Many books and films have featured the Brooklyn Bridge and millions of people have crossed it. It was the one of the most amazing technological achievements of its time, yet few people know that a woman helped supervise much of its construction. After her husband became bedridden, Emily Roebling became his liaison to the project – eventually communicating with the engineers and suppliers so well that it was rumored that she had become the Chief Engineer herself!
