Special Events:

Noted Playwright/Actor Steve LaRocque Performs <i>Byline: Ernie Pyle</i> at the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus on Veterans Day

Steve LaRocque, one of DC's finest local actors and playwrights and co-founder of Quotidian Theatre Company at the Writer's Center, will be performing his new one-man show, <i>Byline: Ernie Pyle</i>, in the main theatre of the Cultural Arts Center, Montgomery College-Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus, at 11 am on Monday, November 12, the day we observe Veterans Day. The event is free and open to all.

The Ernie Pyle Memorial on the island of Iejima, northwest of Okinawa Island

Byline: Ernie Pyle consists of excerpts from the wartime dispatches of Ernie Pyle, one of the first "embedded" reporters. The war that he wrote about was World War II. His dispatches, published across the country in the Scripps-Howard chain of newspapers, gave the American public an intimate account of their young generation at war. When Pyle fell to a sniper's bullet on a tiny island in the Pacific, the men of his unit marked the location and placed this inscription: "On this spot the 77th Infantry Division lost a Buddy. Ernie Pyle, 18 April 1945."

This theatrical event, part of the Cultural Arts Center's Journeys and Voices series, is co-sponsored by the Paul Peck Institute for American Culture and Civic Engagement at Montgomery College; the Writing Arts Committee of the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus' Department of English, Reading, World Languages, American English Language Program, and the women's and gender studies program; and the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus' Cultural Arts Center. For further information, please contact Dr. Francine Jamin, director of the Paul Peck Institute for American Culture and Civic Engagement, at or 240-567-1387.
