Rochester Hills Public Library to Host Film and Discussion Series on John F. Kennedy/50

In honor of the Friends of the Rochester Hills Public Library 50th anniversary, the Rochester Hills Public Library announces a two-part series called “JFK/50”.   Through film and discussion, we will present a program on another momentous event that occurred 50 years ago.  Half a century ago, John F. Kennedy was inaugurated as America’s 35th president, declaring that “the torch has been passed to a new generation,” poised to meet the challenges of the 1960s.  Join us as Professor Gregory Sumner leads a film and discussion program reconsidering the Kennedy presidency and what made those years of the “New Frontier” special in the history of our nation. 

            Dr. Sumner, professor of 20th Century American History at the University of Detroit Mercy, will introduce and facilitate the two-evening film and discussion program.  The program will be held on Tuesday, October 4 and Tuesday, October 25.  Both sessions will be held from 6:30–8:30 p.m. in the library’s multipurpose room.  Registration is open to those who live or work in Rochester, Rochester Hills, or Oakland Township and have a valid Rochester Hills Public Library card.  To register for the series, please visit the Events page at or call Adult Services at 248-650-7130.  For further details, please contact Lynne at 248-650-7133 or  The library is located in downtown Rochester at 500 Olde Towne Rd.
