Caffe Lena has brought live folk music to Saratoga Springs since the 1960s.  Think Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger, Odetta, Judy Collins and beyond.  The venue has survived and thrived to become the "longest-running coffee house in the United States."

Please join WMHT for a public screening of their new documentary film Lena: A Life in Folk, telling the story of founder Lena Spencer.  Field Horne, a public historian and founding trustee of Caffe Lena, Inc., will lead a pre-screening discussion. 

When: Thursday, September 12, at 6pm

Where: Gannett Auditorium, Palamountain Hall
For whom: free and open to the public
