UNION, NJ - When Orson Welles broadcast his dramatization of H.G. Well’s “War of the Worlds” on the radio in 1938, listeners across the country thought that Martians were invading New Jersey and panic took over the county. It was one of the most dramatic events of its time. 

Now Union residents can see what the fuss was all about. Union Public Library and Raconteur Radio Show will bring a live theatrical radio performance of "War of the Worlds", complete with period costumes, commercials, Golden Age equipment, and dramatic sound effects on Tuesday, August 20 at 7:00 p.m. This family friendly show is free and open to the public and takes place at the Main Library, 1980 Morris Avenue.
