In 1893 a well-educated young woman wrote a picture letter to a sick little boy. It began, "I don’t know what to write to you so I shall tell you a story about four little rabbits whose names were Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail and Peter". In December, 1901 she went on to privately print 250 copies of The Tale of Peter Rabbit in time for the holidays. Exhibits are located on the first and second floor displays.
Howie Mandel LIVE
Tuesday, December 7th, 2010 @ 7:30pm at The Cowan Center
HOWIE MANDEL has been a force in show business for over 30 years. From his six seasons on "St. Elsewhere" to hosting the national phenomenon "Deal or No Deal," Howie brings comedy, charisma and unmatched likability to every project. He’s a frequent guest on "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno and can be heard in syndication on his Emmy Award nominated children series "Bobby’s World." He’s been a mainstay on the comedy scene since his 1979 debut at the Comedy Store in L.A. - an appearance that scored him his first tv appearance on "Make Me Laugh." He performs over 200 comedy concert dates each year. Lucky for us, this year, one of those stops includes the Cowan Center!
