Meet Harriet Tubman at the Library

On Monday, September 21, at 6:00 p.m., in the Easton branch of the Talbot County Free Library, Gwendolyn Briley-Strand will put on her PowerPoint show, “Harriet Tubman: Meet the Woman” as part of this year’s One Maryland One Book celebration. One Maryland One Book is the program in which people all across the state read and discuss the same book. This year’s book is James McBride’s “Song Yet Sung.”

A re-enactor herself, Gwendolyn Briley-Strand has twice performed as Harriet Tubman at the White House. She has also portrayed Tubman at the Smithsonian, the Kennedy Center, and other museums and cultural organizations. This program is made possible by the Maryland Humanities Council.
