Virtual Film Discussion: The Psychic Highway

The Gardiner Library will host a virtual film discussion of the documentary “Psychic Highway” on Thursday April 1 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Michael Keene, through the use of archival photographs, original music and narration, will premier “Psychic Highway” followed by a Q&A. Michael is a frequent guest speaker at New York libraries and has produced several award winning history programs.
