Also in February we will celebrate Black History Month with renowned storyteller Shirley Johnson presenting a program for adults entitled: African-American History: Past, Present, Future. Join her at Main on Tuesday, February 25 at 7:30 and be transported from the late 1700s to the present, and then to possible events of tomorrow.
March is Women's History Month and we have a special presentation to mark it. On Wednesday, March 19 at 7:30 Broadway actress Dorothy Leeds stars in a one-woman show in which she visits a series of infamous, disreputable women from different time periods and backgrounds. In seven vignettes and frequent conflicts with Eleanor Roosevelt, Dorothy learns from these fascinating women by becoming each one and imparting the subtle lessons they teach. The New York Times says, “Leeds inspires and entertains.” Good Lessons from Bad Women celebrates the good and bad in all of us!
