Lena: A Life in Folk – Free Screening and Conversation
September 12 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join WMHT Public Media for a free screening and conversation of our latest film: Lena | A Life in Folk.
After decades of trials, tribulations, evictions, losses, and near bankruptcy, Lena Spencer saw her inspired vision of a creative gathering place for her community become a reality with Caffé Lena. Her boundless passion and perseverance served as the driving force behind her renowned establishment now known as the longest-running coffeehouse in the country, recognized as an American Treasure by the Library of Congress, and a place where folk music continues to thrive after six decades.
