She was a prolific poetess who supported herself with her writing of poems, essays, stories and travelogues. 

She was a passionate patriot whose poetry in support of the Union Cause, elicited a response from President Lincoln.

She was a “Romantic Wanderer.” The publication of her book,  A Russian Journey, detailing her two year sojourn in this exotic land, won international acclaim.

She published a true slave narrative entitled “Aunt Sally” around the same time as Uncle Tom’s Cabin.

While she was a citizen of the world, her fondness for the town of Framingham is evident in her poem  “Framingham” written for the Bi-Centennial celebration.

Come hear more as Libby Franck reveals fascinating discoveries about this Framingham resident.
