AIPCT is dressed up for the holidays! We will have an Open House on Saturday night December 15. Santa Claus will be in attendance from 6:00 until 7:30, and children are welcome. It is a come and go event, but those who come are welcome to stay for the whole evening. After that, we will have out of town guests, Vern Crawford, Lenore Langsdorf, and John August (and family), celebrating Yuletide and Graduation. The event will close around 10 PM. This event is free and open to the public. Tours of the AIPCT will be available.
There will be Christmas punch, cookies, and other snacks and libations. For those who have always wanted to see the inside of the historic Ransmeier home in Murphysboro, this is a good opportunity. The halls and walls are decked with local art and the Institute houses some 30,000 books, as well as important historical papers in the tradition of American thought.
