The Westport Library Presents

The Crisis of the Union, Then and Now

A Lecture Series by Connor Williams, American Historian
June 25, August 13, and October 15, 2024, 6 pm

Over a three-part series this summer and fall, Williams will present The Crisis of the Union, Then and Now at the Westport Library. Using a historical perspective, Williams will illuminate the many factors from approximately 1848 to 1861 that started a conflict that (between those fighting for the United States and those fighting against them) killed more Americans than all our other wars from 1775 onward, combined.

Following each historical presentation, Williams will guide a respectful discussion about the current politics of our present, and how they both resonate and differ with the passions of the past. For these conversations he will keep the focus more on trends and ideologies than party affiliation; Williams only plans on using “Republican” and “Democrat” in their historical, 1850s sense.

Observations: Paintings at the VIC

Exhibit Reception Sunday, June 30, 3 – 5 pm
I’ve been painting at the VIC for over 20 years, observing how the light changes from morning to afternoon, the colors, from one season to another, and the views from year to year.

This is a special place that provides educational experiences, recreational opportunities and access for all. I believe my paintings illustrate the great respect I have for the Adirondack environment.

I am humbly grateful for the 100’s of hours spent on the VIC trails. In return I am offering a special opportunity to both bring home a painting and help support the programming of the VIC.

Depot Theatre Presents


Opens 2024 main stage season
June 27 through July 14

The Depot Theatre in Westport, New York, is pleased to announce the dynamic cast of ANALOG & VINYL, the first production in the theatre’s 46th season main stage lineup.

ANALOG & VINYL is a musical rom-com romp with a memorable score infused with the influences of Elvis Costello, the Beatles, and Brian Wilson. It’s a delicious, devilish tale of Harrison, a young record shop owner, Rodeo Girl, the seemingly spacey—yet weirdlywise—hipster obsessed with him, and a mysterious stranger who rocks their world with an offer they might not be able to refuse.

The Music of Nature

Saturday, June 29, 5 pm
Pianist Ben Cosgrove will once again combine the resonant sounds of an acoustic piano with the rustling of leaves, a croaking bullfrog chorus, and the compelling whir of wind under a canopy of trees, clouds and dappled rays of sun, all in the ideal outdoor setting for a concert—the Champlain Area Trails (CATS) Essex Quarry Nature Preserve.
