Mother Jones Portrayed by Claire Nolan
August 8 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$20
Claire is a storyteller and an historical re-enactor. She tells personal and literary stories as well as folk and fairy tales. Telling the story of Mother Jones is not only enjoyable for Claire but it combines at least three of her passions: History, stories and social justice.
During her presentation Claire also hopes to provide a springboard for discussion of the historical character and her time and place. Claire’s repertoire includes Mary Harris (Mother) Jones, Rachel Carson, Georgia O’Keeffe and Marie Curie. She welcomes suggestions for other important women from history to add to her repertoire. Claire’s portrayals are especially appropriate for Middle School, High School and Adult audiences.
Claire has appeared at Wiawaka Center for Women in Lake George, Caffe Lena in Saratoga, Emma Treadwell Thacher Nature Center, Story Sundays at the Glen Sanders Mansion in Scotia, and at festivals, conferences, colleges, libraries, schools and community events in New York and New England. Her repertoire also includes storytelling – Historical Stories, International Folk Tales, Myths, Literary Stories and Personal Family Stories. Claire’s variety of folktales, literary tales, myths, and personal stories resonate with audiences both young and old.
