The Front Page: A History of the News from Town Criers to TV–100 minutes with Mac Deford and Tom DeMarco @ Rockport Opera House
January 24 @ 6:30 pm - 8:10 pm
Mac Deford and Tom DeMarco are back for a thirteenth 100-minute History Roadshow for 2020! Each year they choose as their topic something at least vaguely relevant to the subject of that year’s upcoming Camden Conference. It is informative, humorous and above all entertaining.
The show will take place Thursday, January 23, 6:00 p.m. at the Portland Public Library, Friday, January 24, 6:30 p.m. at the Rockport Opera House and Sunday, January 26, 2:00 p.m. at the University of Maine’s Hutchinson Center in Belfast. No advanced registration is necessary, but donations are appreciated.
Tom DeMarco is the author of fifteen books (his speculative novel, The One-way Time Traveler, is the latest) and a Principal of The Atlantic Systems Guild, a technology think tank with offices in the United States, United Kingdom and Germany. Mac Deford is a retired Foreign Service officer with service primarily in the Middle East. He had a subsequent career with Merrill Lynch International, mostly in South America and Asia, and was a regular columnist with The Free Press.
This event is presented by the Camden Conference in anticipation of the 33rd Annual Camden Conference: The Media Revolution: Changing the World, February 21-23, 2020. No advanced registration is necessary, but donations are appreciated.
