We are so pleased and honored that Program Director Audrey Rowe and Executive Director Nancy Gagnier are being honored at the Ideas Festival with the Carol Buchanan Award for for Outstanding Contribution to Civic and Intellectual Life! Carol Buchanan was a beloved Maplewoodian who was president of the Hilton Neighborhood Association while being active with the Maplewood Library Board of Trustees and the Community Coalition on Race. Both Audrey and Nancy had many occasions to work closely with Carol and so this award is especially meaningful to them.
The Maplewood Library’s Ideas Festival celebrates the talent and creativity of our community. Now celebrating its 9th year, the Festival will run from April 17 to 29, and all events will be in person. All programs are free and open to the public.
In addition to the award, we are excited to share that Coalition Trustee Robert A. Marchman is on the THE ACLU and American Life panel discussion that will also include former Coalition trustee Rhea Beck:
