"Margaret Bourke-White, Courageous Photographer"
a living history presentation by Sally Matson
will be presented on 
Wednesday, May 21, 2014 
at 1:30 PM 
in Warner Town Hall
(5 E. Main St, Warner NH)

Letters and tender WWII-era V-mails found at Syracuse University form the basis for this living history program by actress Sally Matson, a graduate of Northwestern University, who combines her love of research, writing, and acting to bring fearless, historical women to life. Margaret Bourke-White is her newest subject.

Photographer Margaret Bourke-White was born in 1904. Her career paralleled the rise of FORTUNE and LIFE magazines where she became as famous as her photos. Her books and brilliant photographs have been admired worldwide. She had to make Stalin laugh to get his picture, and Patton told her to hide his jowls. In this program, set in the 1950s, “Margaret” has stopped taking photos, but now shares stories of some of her early adventures, and shows off some of her famous photographs.

The program is followed by a discussion session for the audience to share stories or ask questions.

FREE: (donations welcome).

All ages welcome: perfect for home-school families.
