Sunday, July 23rd – Susan Brozena, M.D.

From Cardiologist in Philadelphia to Pocono fly fishing and its history.

Susan Brozena, M.D., is an Emeritus Associate Professor of Medicine of the University of Pennsylvania. Through her more than three-decade career, her practice in Cardiology was of course her primary focus. A twist of fate introduced her to Pocono flyfishing and a local sports club, the Brodheads Forest and Stream Association, originally chartered in 1929. After some discussion and reluctance by the all-male members, she became its first female member in 2004. She has not only enjoyed the benefits of the Club and fishing the beautiful Pocono streams, but also became fascinated by its wonderful history.  In 2020, she authored a book on local history and history of the Club’s property, first as a farm purchased in 1789 by a Revolutionary war veteran, then as a resort built in 1825. She will discuss that local history and its many twists and turns over the past 200 years.

The Parthenon Enigma Summary

In this fascinating presentation, Joan Breton Connelly will share with us how she unlocked one of the great mysteries of Classical studies—the meaning of the Parthenon friezes—with detective work involving mummies, lost plays, and other intriguing clues.  The Parthenon is probably the most famous building in the world, and certainly the most important symbolic representation of the birth of democracy.  Ms. Connelly takes on the story of its origin with images, visuals, fun, spirit and a sparkle in her eye.
