Going, Going, Gone! What the Next Generation Won’t Remember

Saturday, February 10 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

During the past 20 years, we’ve gained Smart Phones, GPSs, Instagram, TikTok,
Facebook and many other services and devices. 

However, we’ve also lost some things that many of us grew up with!


In “Going Going Gone,” Maryanne Christiano-Mistretta will walk us down memory lane and talk
about products that are either on their way out the door, or completely obsolete. Some may surprise you!

Among the objects fading from memory are: VHS video tapes, phone booths (and making phone calls in
general!), travel agents, bookstores, newspapers and classified ads, wristwatches,
maps, dial-up internet, encyclopedias, CDs, landline phones, film cameras, yellow
pages and address books, and hand-written letters.

Which of these items do you miss?

Also, there is one item that people think is making a comeback, but in reality, it
never went away. Can you guess what that is?

Christiano-Mistretta will jolt your memory discussing other stuff we’ve long
forgotten about.

You can share your views in this interactive lecture—audience participation is greatly
encouraged! You may also bring your old items for “Show & Tell.”

Please register.

Maryanne Christiano-Mistretta is an award-winning journalist, five-time author, book editor/ghost writer, blogger, and public speaker.
