Join the Athol Public Library at 568 Main Street, Athol, on Saturday, November 5, 2022 from 10:30 – 11:30 a.m., as we welcome Frank Mandosa for Alfred Hitchcock: Master of Suspense.

This is a one hour slideshow presentation on the master of suspense and his movies. His name is as famous as his legendary films. Known as ‘Hitch’ by his friends and colleagues, he had a knack for tapping into his audience’s deepest anxieties, phobias, and fears. Brilliant yet neurotic, witty yet droll, he was a showman in every sense of the word. You’ll hear about Hitchcock’s life and career, enjoy some clips from his movies, and hear some behind-the-scenes anecdotes, and then be off to have-as he would famously say in his weekly TV series Alfred Hitchcock Presents- “a good evening”.

Frank Mandosa is a full-time high school English teacher with a lifelong love for cinema. Since 2012 he has been presenting on a wide variety of film-related topics. In the past he has hosted an Academy Awards lecture, Bing Crosby: The King of Christmas Crooners, and a Paul Newman lecture at the Athol Public Library. Please visit for more information.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Athol Public Library, this program is free and open to the public. Registration is required; there will be a sign-in table at the door.
