John Lyons and Ronni Newton will host a Facebook Live discussion with Matt Warshauer on Thursday, Oct. 8, 2020, featuring special guest and West Hartford resident Matt Warshauer.
Warshauer, a professor at Central Connecticut State University and a political historian, is known for the Halloween displays he creates in front of his North Main Street home. This year’s display focuses on two of the critical issues facing the country today: COVID-19 and Black Lives Matter.
Thursday’s discussion will focus on how and why Warshauer started creating the elaborate displays, where his ideas come from, what goes into the planning and construction, and what messages/lessons he hopes to convey. The community will have the ability to post their questions on the We-Ha.com Facebook page, and the event will be streamed on West Hartford Community Interactive’s cable channels as well as YouTube and through multiple Facebook groups.
In case you missed it, last week’s Facebook Live forum featured guests and West Hartford Public Schools teachers Matt and Elysha Dicks.
Elysha is a kindergarten teacher at Morley Elementary School and Matt is a fifth grade teacher at Wolcott School. They provided an inside look at how it is to teach in the hybrid model and spoke about some best practices, including holding classes outside.
They also spoke about their other venture – Speak Up – which promotes the art of personal storytelling and supports the community of storytellers.
Matt Dicks also spoke about his writing career, and both shared some stories from their past.
