24 ENTERTAINMENT JANUARY 8-14, 2020 | VALLEY BREEZE | PAWTUCKET EDITION Valley Talks begin Sunday at MoWC WOONSOCKET – Valley Talks, a series of biweekly historical lectures, will begin Sunday, Jan. 12. All events are free and take place at 1:30 p.m., at the Museum of Work & Culture. This year's series will focus on the Rhode Island Historical Society's 2020 theme, Spotlight Rhode Island, highlighting per- forming arts and artists throughout the state. The series will kick-off with "SOS: Saving our Stadium," a talk by Stadium restoration lead architect Dan Peloquin. In this presentation, Peloquin will share a first-hand account of the process to rescue and refurbish Woonsocket's own Stadium Theatre. Built in 1926, the Stadium was opened by Arthur Daman so locals could access high quality entertainment "right here at home." Peloquin will discuss this history and how Daman's dream inspired the 1997- 2001 restoration efforts, spearheaded by a small group of volunteers. Having been involved in every aspect of the restoration of the theatre and renovation of the Stadium Conservatory, Peloquin is uniquely situated to present on this beloved Woonsocket land- mark. Seating is limited to 75 and is first- come, first-served. Other Valley Talks will include: • Jan. 26: Rhode Island International Film Festival Executive Director George Marshall presents on the history of the festival, which began in Woonsocket, and screen 2019 Festival winner "A Sister". • Feb. 9: Former Providence Journal music critic Rick Massimo explores the history of the Newport Folk Festival through stories, music and images captured in his new book I Got a Song. • Feb. 23: Writer Jeanne Douillard exam- ines the initial move of French settlers from France to Canada, their transformation into British subjects, and their eventual immigra- tion to New England. • March 8: Paul & Denise Bourget dis- cusses how they transform themselves into Brevet Major General George Sears Greene and Mrs. Martha Greene & their dedication to historical reenacting. • March 22: Filmmaker Christian de Rezendes offers a preview of his historical documentary series "Slatersville: America's First Mill Village" highlighting the French- Canadian portion of the story.
