The election is fast approaching – how do you make sense of it all? Especially with so much information coming from a variety of both reliable and unreliable sources.

Join us Monday, October 26 at 7 p.m. for a Facebook live Q&A with WLVR news directors and reporters as we answer your questions about Election 2020.

What You Need to Know is a weekly series that’ll help you understand the election process during this unprecedented time. You’ll get updates, info and the clarity you need to make informed decisions.

Presented by Lehigh Valley Public Media

Join us at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, November 11 for a screening of The Hidden Seed: Bethlehem’s Forgotten Utopia, followed by an interactive Q&A session.

Created as part of Festival UnBound in 2019, The Hidden Seed: Bethlehem’s Forgotten Utopia is a gripping play performed by actors from Touchstone Theatre dramatizing the early history of the Moravians in Bethlehem. Three 18th century female ghosts — a formerly enslaved West African, a Native American, and one of the original Moravian immigrants from Europe — agree to tell the whole story, not just the inspirational parts. Dive into the hidden history of Bethlehem’s birth with a timely piece that encourages us all to examine our shared past with clear eyes.

The discussion will be moderated by Lehigh Valley Public Media journalist Jen Rehill.

Guests will include: Bill George – Co-Founder Touchstone Theatre, Deirdre Van Walters – Performer/Playwright/Activist, Candece Tarpley – Playwright/Poet/Actress/Dancer
