Silent Serial Sensations Book Launch and Conversation — POSTPONED

In light of this incredibly challenging, difficult, and painful time in our country, Wharton Studio Museum and Buffalo Street Books have decided to postpone our virtual book launch event slated for Thursday, June 4th, 2020. We will keep you posted as to when it will be rescheduled. Thank you for your understanding.

Join WSM for a virtual book launch hosted by Buffalo Street Books for Silent Serial Sensations: The Wharton Brothers and the Magic of Early Cinema. Author and historian Barabra Tepa Lupack, will be in conversation about Ithaca’s storied silent film past with Cathy Crane, Associate Professor of film at Ithaca College, and Diana Riesman, Executive Director of the Wharton Studio Museum, in a panel moderated by Brett Brossard, Executive Director of Cinemapolis. Register today via Facebook. or visit

The History Center is co-sponsoring this event, originally planned as an in-store signing with Ms. Lupack on May 9th, but, due to COVID-19, could not happen. Silent Serial Sensations (Cornell University Press) can be ordered for curbside pickup through Buffalo Street Books.
