  6. Combining art with ornithology, John James Audubon inspired generations of artists and photographers to capture images of wildlife. Sharing Audubon’s passion about nature and wildlife, Randall Patterson has traveled across America to photograph birds. A six-time winner of The Best of The Universe of Colour Photography and featured at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Randall will present breath taking images and discuss the mechanics of bird photography at a live virtual program at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, September 17 at https://allentx.swagit.com/live/ Audience can submit questions until 8:30 p.m., Sept. 17 at liveonstage@cityofallen.org Satisfying an earnest desire to capture images of birds while navigating through the air, Randall focuses on copious details of every feather. Acquiring the proper gear is the first step but capturing the wings in extreme motion and photographing them without blur is a daunting challenge. Expending a prodigious number of hours for developing a quick-draw method, this process allows the photographer to catch fantastic shots. While continuously learning, Randall is eager to share his knowledge with others. More about Randall can be found at birdsiviewtexas.com. Call 214-509-4911 for further questions.

  16. Susan Eisenhower, granddaughter of President Dwight Eisenhower, will discuss her latest book How Ike Led at 7:00 p.m. Thursday, September 24, at https://allentx.swagit.com/live/ Questions can be submitted to Ms. Eisenhower until 8:30 p.m., Sept. 24, at liveonstage@cityofallen.org. A five-star general and 34th president of the United States, Dwight Eisenhower was born in nearby Denison, Texas. He was affectionately known as the first Texan to become a president. Few people have made decisions as momentous as Eisenhower, nor has one person had to make such a varied range of them. From D-Day to the integration of Little Rock’s public schools, from the Korean War to Cold War crises, from the Red Scare to the Missile Gap controversies, Ike was able to give America eight years of relative peace and prosperity by relying on a core set of principles. While numerous biographies have been written about Dwight Eisenhower, this book offers an insightful analysis of Ike’s decision-making abilities and leadership skills. An engaging writer, Susan’s presentation is highly recommended for all who are interested in American history and the decision-making process. How Ike Led shows us not just what a great American did, but why—and the lessons that can be garnered from his exemplary leadership. “A well-written reflection on one of the most significant American presidents. The compelling substance of How Ike Led is enhanced by the author’s sensitive style. It brings America’s most remarkable public figures into lasting focus.” —Henry A. Kissinger, U.S. Secretary of State 1973–1977 Call 214-509-4911 for further questions.
