Details

“Famous and Infamous Women of North Carolina” is a lighthearted look at some serious history—the roles and accomplishments of a few notable women—among so many—in whom we can all take pride as being part of the fabric which makes North Carolina so special. We have a woman disguised as a Civil War soldier, a couple of famous pirates, a daredevil aeronaut, an internationally famous sharpshooter, and a first lady who “really, really, really” liked being married to the governor. We have a young woman who helped start the American Revolution and a pair of sisters who traveled around the country, entertaining audiences in every state with their singing and dancing, and in Europe they enthralled Queen Victoria. All these tales and more are revealed and shared in a most enjoyable evening of storytelling when award-winning author and storyteller Randell Jones shares “Famous and Infamous Women of North Carolina.” Sponsored by the Friends of the Library
