LUNCH WITH BOOKS - Tuesday, April 4, 2020 - Cancelled
"The Unsinkable Molly Brown Living History Portrayal"

Learn about the life of heroine, social reformer, and suffragist Margaret "Maggie" Brown in a first-person portrayal by JoAnn F. Peterson. Known as the heroine of the Titanic, Margaret Brown ran for Senate before women had the right to vote, helped form the U.S. juvenile court system, volunteered during WWI, and became an award-winning actress. In this program, you'll learn that her extraordinary life was even greater than the Hollywood hype of the fictitious character "The Unsinkable Molly Brown" which was loosely based on the real, amazing Margaret Brown. 

Brown is portrayed by veteran Lunch With Books presenter, JoAnn Peterson. Peterson's portrayal will be set in 1922, 10 years after the Titanic's sinking. The Unsinkable Molly Brown comes to the Ohio County Public Library through the WV Humanities Council’s History Alive program. 

Lunch With Books starts at noon in the Library Auditorium. 

"Lunch With Books" is the library’s flagship program for adult patrons. These lunchtime programs feature authors, poets, musicians, historians, and more every Tuesday at noon. Complimentary beverages are provided. Bring your lunch, feed your brain!
