March 6, 12-1 p.m.--Harriet Beecher Stowe: A Literary Warrior; Lunch and Performance Cost $25, includes lunch. President Abraham Lincoln is said to have referred to Uncle Tom’s Cabin author, Harriet Beecher Stowe, as “the little woman who wrote the book that started this great war.” Legend or true, the phrase is an apt description of her work in galvanizing many against slavery. Join us for a riveting and dramatic performance, as actress Elizabeth Davidson will introduce us to the career and very personal struggles of this complex and important historic figure. The one-woman performance lasts about an hour. Elizabeth Davidson is an actress with 30 years experience. A graduate of the prestigious Indiana University School of Music, she has performed in theatres around the country and in a wide range of genres. Cost: $25 includes lunch.
