Fragile Freedom: A Women's History Month Dramatic Presentation by Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site
Sunday, March 29th, 2 p.m.
Fragile Freedom is a one-woman play about the historical fight for the political freedom of women. The author draws parallels between the past and present, suggesting that the assertion of woman's freedom is still unfinished business. Playwright and actress Christine Emmert will take us on the journey toward women's rights, meeting many companions along the way, including Sojourner Truth, Mark Twain, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. This play was performed at the National Susan B. Anthony Museum and House in May 2014. Registration is required; click here to register online.
The library will be closed on April 5th, Easter Sunday.

His wooden works span the fifty year period from 1920 until his death in 1970, from the organic forms of the Arts and Crafts period, through the sharp edged crystalline shapes of Expressionism to the curvilinear free-forms for which he is best known.
