The Nancies: A True Story told by Broadcast Journalist and Author Sue Pearson
In 1861 "forty-six prim and proper women" formed an all-female militia in LaGrange, Georgia, to protect their homes and families while able-bodied men left town to join the Confederate Army. Four years later, the "Nancies" faced nearly 2,000 Yankee soldiers cresting a hill at the edge of town. Three time Emmy winner Sue Pearson, former news anchor and one of the most respected broadcast journalists in Northern California, researched and authored a historical novel based on this true story (which involved her great grandmother and two great aunts).

Family Letters: Escaping the Holocaust
When her mother died at the age of 96, Susanne Sommer discovered letters and other documents stored away in folders, shoe boxes, closets and trunks. The correspondence described her parents' desperate efforts to leave Nazi Germany in 1938. At that time, the situation for Germany's Jews had become increasingly ominous, and most countries, including the United States, were hostile to receiving Jewish refugees. The letters describe a compelling story between her parents and a distant cousin in Arlington, Virginia who struggled to help them find a way out. Susanne compiled these letters and collaborated with a local playwright to write Echoes in the Heart. Presented by HIST 312 Class/Debbie Moreno.
When: 2:30-3:50pm in Lilac Hall room FL5-113
