The Wood Library and Museum and the South Windsor Historical Society welcome Natalie Belanger, Museum Educator at the Connecticut Historical Society, to present a program KATHARINE HEPBURN: FROM HARTFORD TO HOLLYWOOD at The Wood.
With a stage and film career that spanned six decades, Katharine Hepburn is an American icon. Born and raised in Connecticut, Hepburn had a career in stage, film and television that reflected the changing role of women in broader society. Challenging the norms of the day, she took control of her image and identity by establishing a unique sense of style which influenced countless women, fashion designers, and the informal, elegant approach to American style that continues to resonate today. The story of her life-long ties to Connecticut offers a complete picture of how Hepburn became the woman and the star she was. This presentation will link her career and legacy to her roots in Connecticut to ask how she achieved her truly extraordinary legacy.
This program is open to the public. Registration is not necessary.
Suggested donation is $3.00 for members of the South Windsor Historical Society and Wood Memorial Library or $5.00 for the general public. Refreshments will be served. The Wood is located at 783 Main Street in South Windsor, CT.
