FRIENDS OF HANLEY LIBRARY TO PRESENT ‘SEASONAL READINGS’ ON WESB


BRADFORD, Pa. – The Friends of Hanley Library at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford will present its 16th annual “Seasonal Readings” at 12:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 8, on WESB’s LiveLine.

Dr. Donald Ulin, associate professor of English, will share unpublished letters about Christmas written by Emma Alderson, a Quaker immigrant in the 1840s, to her family back in England.

Alderson's letters contrast Christmas on the American frontier with the Christmases she remembers in England. They share her loneliness so far removed from her family but also her excitement about new traditions in a new land.

They are part of the research Ulin has been have been conducting over the last five years for a book of immigrant correspondence.

The annual radio readings on WESB began with the late Dr. Robert C. Laing, Jr., professor emeritus at Pitt-Bradford, in 1990. Since 2001, Dr. Donald Ulin has carried on this treasured Bradford tradition. WESB broadcasts at 1490 AM.

The Friends of Hanley Library was founded in 1990 to strengthen relations between the community and Pitt-Bradford’s Hanley Library. The Friends also acquaint area residents with what the library has to offer by sponsoring cultural and educational programs, usually related to books and their authors.
