The presentation shares how Will Rogers became a master of communication and discusses Rogers’ insight into the human condition and problems of his day. You will find much his insight as applicable today as it was decades ago. 

Their presentation will begin at 3 p.m. in the LaGrange-Bear Creek Unity Library, at 560 Second Street in LaGrange. The library is located in the LaGrange Heritage Square, formerly the LaGrange High School building.
