January 25, 2006 Lecture and Booksigning - World War II Bombardier Charles Stevens and James Doolittle's granddaughter, Jonna Hoppes, present information from their World War II-themed books. Charles Norman Stevens will discuss, An Innocent At Polebrook: A Memoir of an 8th Air Force Bombardier. Stevens is a retired English teach who once served the 351st Bomb Group based in Polebrook, England. Only 19 years young at the time he was called into action, his first-hand story describes how it felt for a California kid to leave the land of sunshine and suddenly be flying German bomb raids in a B-17 fighter. Jonna Hoppes will discuss, Calculated Risk: The Extraordinary Life of Jimmy Doolittle. Her book (there have been others) pays tribute to not only to aviator Jimmy Doolittle, but to his faithful wife who supported his efforts. Doolittle was known for a daring raid on Tokyo in 1942 and captured the hearts of Americans with many feats as an engineer who pushed the limits of aeronautics during World War II. This event will is hosted by Friends of the Library as a fundraiser to support Huntington Beach Public Library programs.

January 25, 2006 Grand Night for Singing - This Musical Revue in 2 acts with music by Richard Rodgers and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II first opened the Broadway season in 1994 with tremendous response. Over three decades after Rogers & Hammerstein collaborated on the The Sound Of Music, A Grand Night for Singing gained wildly enthusiastic reviews. Rodgers & Hammerstein's "Shall We Dance?" performed as a comic pas de deux for a towering beauty and her diminutive admirer throws a hilarious spin on the original stage presentation of this and other songs from two of the most prolific songwriters on the American musical scene. The song list includes many best-selling Broadway hits such as Some Enchanted Evening, I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair, I Cain't Say No, Surrey With The Fringe On Top, It Might As Well Be Spring, Oh, What A Beautiful Mornin', If I Loved You and many more. Location: Huntington Beach Playhouse at Huntington Beach Central Library, 7111 Talbert Ave., Huntington Beach, CA www.hbph.com
