Monday, May 1 • 6:30pm

Iconic Erie—Landmark: Erie's Bicentennial Tower Screening & Discussion
Join us for a screening of the original documentary Landmark followed by excerpts from the upcoming PBS series Iconic America and panel discussion. This event is free but registration is required. Presented in partnership with Erie County Public Library, Jefferson Educational Society and Courtney Baran Historical Consulting. Register at www.WQLN.org/Landmark.

Saturday, June 10 • 3:00pm
Iconic Erie—HistERIE Week African American History Walking Tour & Discussion
This one-hour walking tour, in partnership with Our West Bayfront and Erie County Public Library, starts and ends at the Hagen History Center and celebrates the history of African American places of note on Erie's west side. Refreshments will be provided after the walk, where we will screen excerpts from Iconic America, and discuss potential project ideas with — and for — the community. No registration required.

Saturday, July 8 • 1:30 pm
H.O. Hirt Auditorium, Blasco Library
Iconic America: The Cowboy
The cowboy is the quintessential American—fiercely independent, brave and laconic. This episode examines the myths and realities of this archetype, which remains as potent as ever in the 21st century. No registration required.

Iconic America: Our Symbols and Stories with David Rubenstein returns Tuesdays starting July 11, at 10:00 p.m. on WQLN PBS.

Funding for Iconic America: Our Symbols and Stories with David Rubenstein is provided by The Zohar Ben-Dov Family through the Luminescence Foundation.
