Tea & Talk Series: Who was Edna Dean Proctor?

tea series collage
March 9th at 2:00 p.m.
Edgell Memorial Library
3 Oak St, Framingham 

Enjoy tea while viewing a short lecture that will take you more deeply into our History in the Stitches exhibition. All guests are invited to stay and view the exhibition.

We knew Edna Dean Proctor was a local poetess during the Civil War era, but since we chose her 1870s tea gown for our exhibit we decided to do more digging. Storyteller Libby Franck will discuss Edna’s remarkable life including a solo trip to Russia. Libby is not able to join us for a live presentation on this day however, and Access Framingham has recorded her for our viewing. 

Members $5; Non-members $10. Space is limited; Reservations required.
