10/7/2020 - Chicago True Stories of the 1920s on November 10, 2020

On November 10, 2020 from 1-3pm, join us for this fun and educational online program about true stories of 1920s Chicago.

The 1920's are saturated with surprise, sequins, and murder! A fun and funny flapper named Flora tells us how fashion, crime, and prohibition mixed with explosive creativity shaped the decade of the century. You will learn fact from fiction and how reality relates to the 2002 Oscar-winning film "Chicago." This interactive and highly engaging program is a front row seat for the compelling stories of Chicago in the 1920's.

Martina Mathisen of Edu-Tainment Living History is a professional historical reenactor who specializes in programs for library patrons and seniors. She has been working hard to adapt her programs for virtual spaces, which has allowed her to bring her program here to the Southbury Library. Her performances have delighted audiences around the country.
