Performing Arts Series: The Snowflake Man

Wednesday, May 8, 2013 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

The Lake Oswego Public Library is very pleased to present Puppetkabob's “The Snowflake Man” on Wednesday, May 8th at 1 p.m.  

The story of “The Snowflake Man” is inspired by Wilson “Snowflake” Bentley, a self-educated farmer and scientist who attracted world attention in 1885 when he became the first person to capture the image of a single snow crystal. “The Snowflake Man” is a unique trunk show of Czech-style marionettes and props backed by a pop-up book of watercolor paintings telling the story of Snowflake Bentley. This show combines art, science and a little known piece of American history to magical effect!

This free program is presented with the generous support of the Friends of the Lake Oswego Public Library. The Lake Oswego Public Library is located at 706 4th Street, Lake Oswego. For more information, contact Fawn McGee at 503-675-3995.
