Timothy Mooney Performs at St. Michaels Library Mar. 9

Tim Mooney, performer of the hit one-man shows, “Moliere than Thou,” “Lot o’ Shakespeare,” and “Shakespeare’s Histories” is bringing THE GREATEST SPEECH OF ALL TIME to St. Michaels Library on Saturday, March 9, 2019 at 2:00 p.m.

THE GREATEST SPEECH OF ALL TIME leads the audience through the words that shaped history, as they were being spoken. Mooney’s special proclivity for recognizing and interpreting the shades of irony and hyperbole which informed the oratory, and his ability to untangle the “spaghetti” of centuries-old syntax, recreates these events, enabling the audience to experience the moment when everything hangs in the balance!

Mooney presents Frederick Douglass’ searing Fourth-of-July indictment of slavery, mounting a “fiery stream” of rebuke for the “revolting barbarity and shameless hypocrisy” that characterized the American slave trade.

He takes us on a journey of historical figures such as Socrates giving his famous “Apology,” in anticipation of his death sentence, Mark Antony delivering his “Friends, Romans, Countrymen,” address. His performance will include speeches from the following famous orators; Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Winston Churchill and Dr. Martin Luther King. For more information call 410 745-5877 or go to the Events Calendar at www.tcfl.org. Information on the Timothy Mooney Repertory Theatre can be found at www.timmooneyrep.com.

Lunch & Learn with Author Kathleen Sander at St. Michaels Library

Kathleen Sander

Lunch & Learn with author Kathleen Sander about Mary Elizabeth Garrett: Society and Philanthropy in the Gilded Age on March 4, noon.

A century ago, Mary Elizabeth Garrett of Baltimore was hailed as one of the nation’s great philanthropists and businesswomen.  She had “the business capabilities ranking among the great financiers of America,” the New York Times wrote of her.  She did not keep her wealth for herself.  Rather, she generously used it to change society in ways that continue to affect us.  Like her father and brothers, who built Baltimore and the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, she, too, had a bold vision. Through her philanthropies, she turned her dreams of women’s equal status as well educated leaders, as professionals, and as skilled physicians into reality.  She forever changed American medicine and the way physicians were educated in the United States by starting the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in 1893, the nation’s first coeducational, graduate-level medical school.  She elevated women through better opportunities in preparatory and higher education by founding the Bryn Mawr School in Baltimore and financially supporting Bryn Mawr College. In her later years, she worked tirelessly in the suffrage movement.  How she became a leading activist and philanthropist is a remarkable story of persistence, sacrifice, and dedication.

Dr. Sander worked for 25 years in higher education advancement and communications at the University System of Maryland, the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of American History and the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. She received her undergraduate degree from the Ohio State University and her master’s and Ph.D. in American Studies from the University of Maryland College Park. Since 1995 she has taught United States history and women’s history at the University of Maryland University College and in 2003 was awarded the university’s Stanley J. Drazek Teaching Excellence award. In 2005 she received a Fulbright award to teach at St. Petersburg State University in Russia.The Lunch and Learn series is sponsored by the Friends of the Library, coffee and dessert will be provided.
