We are having a TRUNK SHOW!!
ALSO THURSDAY, DECEMBER 5TH!
Join ArtsWest and the Southwest Seattle Historical Society as they present
Stories of the Civil War
Dec. 5th 6 – 6:45pm
“On Stage: Stories of the Civil War” is a 45-minute presentation co-produced by the Southwest Seattle Historical Society and ArtsWest. This free to the public discussion will explore two stories that share the common thread of youth and the Civil War.
The evening begins with a discussion of the 2013 novel Free Boy by one of its authors, West Seattlelite Judy Bentley, past president of our historical society. Free Boy is the story of a 13-year-old slave who escaped from Washington Territory to freedom in Canada on the West’s underground railroad.
We will then move to the eastern United States, and join ArtsWest’s original executive director, Edie Neeson, as she shares the story of Louisa May Alcott and her family, which is the foundation for the 1868 classic Little Women.
Following the discussion, there will be a short intermission before doors reopen for
ticket holders to enjoy “Little Women the broadway musical.”
The discussion is free to the public. ArtsWest has extended a special $28 ticket price for members of the historical society and ArtsWest Patron’s to enjoy the evening show following this On Stage discussion.
Further information on the novel Free Boy can be found on the author’s website.
