Nationally acclaimed historical interpreters dressed in costume will bring each character to life and to speak in the character’s own words. The audience will then question the character, delving more deeply into the issues that have been raised. The replies will be historically authentic, based on research using letters, diaries, journals, and published writings. Finally, the interpreter will step out of character and answer audience questions from a critical, modern perspective.

Venue: Headquarters Library, Barrett Room, 151 S Church St, Spartanburg, SC 29306
