Tuesday Talks:  Bucks County:  The Genius Belt

Explore Bucks County's rich artistic tradition:  from folk painter, Edward Hicks, to the New Hope art colony along the Delaware River, to the influx of literary and theatrical figures during the Great Depression.  Walking down the streets of Doylestown or New Hope in the 1930s or 40s, you might have glimpsed humorist Dorothy Parker at a lunch counter or satirist S.J. Perelman at the hardware store, not to mention Pulitzer Prize winning writers like Oscar Hammerstein, James A. Michener, George S. Kaufman, Moss Hart, or Pearl S. Buck.  Thanks to inexpensive real estate, proximity to New York City, and the lure of country living, Bucks County became such a haven for creativity that the New York media began to call it "the genius belt".  Come along on this entertaining historical tour of a uniquely vibrant community.
