Delaware and Raritan Canal with Linda Barth
Tuesday, May 21, 7 to 10 pm

Did you know that for more than 170 years, the Delaware and Raritan Canal has meandered across the narrow waist of New Jersey? Did you know that the D&R was one of our nation’s most successful towpath canals, carrying more tonnage in 1866 than the more famous Erie Canal? Did you know that Johnson & Johnson, Roebling, and Fleischmann’s Distillery all had their start along the D&R? And did you know that the canal provides the people of central New Jersey with both a water supply and a premier recreational facility?

Canal author and historian Linda J. Barth will introduce you to the people, the bridges, the locks, and the aqueducts that made the canal work. This waterway, now the centerpiece of a popular state park, transported men and supplies between New York and Philadelphia during three wars. Inventor John Holland used the canal to deliver his Holland VI submarine to Washington for its Navy trials, and luxury yachts, like J .P. Morgan’s Tarantula, cruised the waterway. Come learn more about this gem of central New Jersey.

About the Speaker:
Linda Barth has been a fan of New Jersey for a long time. As a fourth-grade teacher, she tried to focus students’ attention on the positive aspects of our state: its diverse geography, history, agriculture, industry, and famous firsts and inventions. A lifelong resident of the Garden State, Linda has written two books on the D&R Canal for Arcadia Publishing and two children’s picture books: Bridgetender’s Boy, published by the National Canal Museum in 2005, and Hidden New Jersey, from Charlesbridge Publishing in 2012. A History of Inventing in New Jersey: From Thomas Edison to the Ice Cream Cone, published by the History Press, was released in 2013. With her husband she has published The Millstone Valley Through Time and Somerville Through Time. She has also contributed to the Encyclopedia of New Jersey. She has just completed New Jersey Originals, volume two of New Jersey firsts and inventions.

Distinguished Artists Series with Anne Marie Macari
Red Deer: Poetry of Prehistoric Art
Thursday, May 16, 2019, 7 pm

Award-winning poet Anne Marie Macari will read poetry from her most recent book, Red Deer, and will discuss prehistoric cave paintings and portable art from the Ice Age at Artsbridge’s Distinguished Artist Series. Red Deer was written from her experiences visiting the painted caves of France and Spain. The art in these caves—paintings, engravings, decorative tools, and sculptures—is from the time of the Ice Age, between 12,000-40,000 years ago. From her first visit to Spain in 2009, Macari was drawn into the rich world of art and history, where our ancestors coexisted with Neanderthals, mammoths, cave bears, as they followed the greats herds, leaving art and artifacts in their wake. Macari chronicles leaving the surface both physically and metaphorically in these vivid poems.
