May 20, 2018-May 20, 2018
Annual meeting of Lanier Library Members with the public invited to also enjoy a historical representation of groundbreaking “stunt” journalist Nellie Bly, who feigned insanity to be committed to a “lunatic asylum” in order to report on the horrific conditions there. She also reported her journey as the fastest human being to circle the globe, completing the trip in 72 days back in 1890 (the same year the Lanier Club was founded!). Come meet performer JoAnn Peterson as Nellie Bly in this Annual Program held at Tryon Fine Arts Center. Reception and refreshments will follow the program in the library.
Program made available through the Kirby Fund at the Polk County Community Foundation. Thank you!
Location: Tryon Fine Arts Center & Lanier Library
