Cuban Missile Crisis

The Ocracoke Community Library will begin an evening programs series tomorrow, Tuesday, October 23, at 7 p.m. Ocracoke resident, and former Ambassador to Romania, Leonard C. Meeker will talk about President John F. Kennedy and the Cuban missile crisis. 

During the early 1960s, Ambassador Meeker was a senior legal counsel to the State Department and is well qualified to shed light on this period in American history. These talks are sponsored by the Ocracoke Friends of the Library. 

If you are on the island be sure to come out to the library tomorrow night. Other programs will be announced in the near future. For more information, please contact the library weekdays between 3:00 and 7:00 p.m. at 252 928-4436.

    Which candidate for President does Leonard support?

  4. Maybe Leonard will enlighten us about Hemingway.

  5. I would not presume to speak for Leonard about his support for presidential candidates. However, I think it is safe to say that he would tell you if you ask him.

    What a wonderful idea.

    Just one more reason (as if there aren't already enough) to support your local library--wherever you are.
