NEW HOPE: Book about town produced for children

Reading to young children, and, as they grow older, encouraging them to read on their own are important parts of parenting and the process of education. And it’s only natural for children to be curious about their hometown and nearby towns.

The New Hope Historical Society’s new book, "Let’s Visit New Hope," aims to satisfy that curiosity by helping youngsters learn about the history and culture of New Hope and Bucks County. The book also delves into the variety of recreational, entertainment and culinary opportunities in the area.

The New Hope Historical Society funded the publication of the book with assistance of the Bucks County Conference and Visitors Bureau and other contributors.

Maureen McGovern is bringing her tribute to female singer-songwriters to New Hope
MAUREEN McGovern was performing at an AIDS benefit in San Francisco several years ago, an event that also featured fellow singer Helen Reddy, a contemporary of Ms. McGovern’s during the 1970s.

   After 9/11, Ms. Reddy — the “Queen of ‘70s Pop” as she was known during that decade — quit performing for a time and returned to her native Australia, where she became a licensed hypnotherapist.

   The San Francisco benefit would be Ms. Reddy’s first time back performing on stage in a while.
