The Monogram Murders. By Sophie Hannah.
After a brief introduction to birding and the birds in North America, Dwight will discuss various habitats, both natural and man-made, and the special birds (with photos) that these habitats attract in the Cuyahoga Valley.

June 4—The Man Who Knew Too Much (Paramount, 1956, 120 minutes)
Dr. Ben Mckenna (Jimmy Stewart) and his singing star wife Jo (Doris Day) are vacationing in French Morocco with their son. A man that the family had befriended on their trip is killed right before their eyes. Before the man dies, he whispers into Dr. McKenna’s ear the story of an impending assassination that will take place in London’s Royal Albert Hall in the near future. Before the McKennas can do anything about this frightful news, their son is kidnapped and threatened with death should they notify the authorities. Can they thwart the assassin’s plans? Will they ever see their son again? No one does suspense better than Hitchcock.
