Who Were the Icarians?

To learn about their history and heritage in the Corning area “go to” the Anita Public Library, Thursday, May 12 @ 5:30pm. Saundra Leinenger, executive director of the Icarian Colony French Foundation will present the French Icarian Village program.
Etienne Cabet’s fictional book “Voyage en Icarie”, spawned the movement in the late 1840’s to establish “fraternity, equality, and liberty” in a very REAL colony SOMEWHERE!
