"Hiroshima and Nagasaki: 70 Years Later" at Dormont Public Library, August 8.

The Dormont Public Library will host "Hiroshima and Nagasaki: 70 Years Later" on August 8.
In commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the events in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, we proudly present a tribute to Japanese history and culture. This special event, offered in partnership with the Japan-America Society of Pennsylvania, is a reflection of this significant period in history and will highlight the many unique aspects of Japanese culture.

This program is recommended for individuals in 3rd grade and up and will feature an interactive demonstration of a traditional Japanese tea ceremony, performance of the beautiful koto musical instrument, and unveiling of a special project completed by members of the library staff and volunteers from the public and the Origami Club of Pittsburgh over the course of several months.
Registration is requested and can be done through the Facebook page or by calling 412.531.8754. The library is located at 2950 W. Liberty Ave. (map), and a five-minute walk south of Potomac Station on the T.
