Her Words Changed the World
Tuesday June 19, 2018
6:30 PM until 7:30 PM
In celebration of Juneteenth, join us for a dynamic presentation exploring the life and impact of anti-slavery novelist Harriet Beecher Stowe. The talk covers Stowe's life – her childhood, family, education, marriage and motherhood – her inspiration to write Uncle Tom's Cabin, and the lasting impact of its message. Connect the past to the present and learn how you can create social change. Seating is limited, so registration is required starting May 22 online or at the Reference Desk at 860-652-7720.
