Fri., July 17, 2015 at 7:30pmJim Strick
Wilhelm Reich: Biologist
Book Signing by Author James Strick, Ph. D.

Historian of science James Strick, a professor at Franklin and Marshall College, will give a talk and sign copies of his new book, Wilhelm Reich, Biologist from Harvard University Press, at Rangeley Public Library. Strick did extensive research on Reich's laboratory microbiology experiments, both at the Wilhelm Reich Museum in Rangeley and at the Reich Archives at Countway Library of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. Strick has training in microbiology as well as history of science; his earlier books Sparks of Life (Harvard U. Press, 2000) and The Living Universe, like this new book, deal with the history of ideas and experiments about the origin of life.

Given Reich's years of living in the Rangeley area, and having his laboratory here opened after his death as the Wilhelm Reich Museum, many area residents should find Strick's reappraisal of Reich's laboratory experiments of interest.

  • Time: 2:00 p.m. Friday, July 17th
  • Place: Rangeley Public Library, 7 Lake St., Rangeley, Maine

Sat., July 18, 2015 at 7:30pmAndy Kahn
The Great American Songbook
A Musical Performance by Andy Kahn

Pianist Andy Kahn of Philadelphia--who performed at Orgonon's "Evenings of Music" series beginning in 2004, and presented by the artist annually, returns for a solo performance to benefit The Wilhelm Reich Infant Trust.

Andy Kahn is committed to preserving "The Great American Songbook." The pianist's "Music by Intention" concerts are the result of decades he has spent researching popular standard songs which evolved into Swing and Jazz, America's enduring contribution to the arts. Andy guides his audiences on a musical romp through the historic Golden Age of American music by Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, Richard Rodgers & Lorenz Hart, Harry Warren, Johnny Mercer and others from this unique musical era. With Be-Bop and Mainstream Jazz taking cues from these timeless songs, the pianist also lends his personal improvisations to a selection of well-known jazz tunes.

  • Time: 7:30 p.m. Saturday, July 18th
  • Place: Office & Conference Building at Orgonon Dodge Pond Road, Rangeley
  • Contribution: $10.00 for adults and $5.00 for children 12 and under.

Refreshments will be served. Tickets are available at the Museum Office and the Museum Bookstore at Orgonon, and at the Rangeley Chamber of Commerce in town. For more information, call (207) 864-3443 or e-mail: wreich@rangeley.org

Andy Kahn has been a longtime friend and supporter of The Wilhelm Reich Infant Trust, and we are appreciative for his generous donation of time and talents over the years for the Trust's many needs and activities. Thank you, Andy!
