COFFEE TALKS WITH NAN COLTON: HARRIET BEECHER STOWE, WORDS OF WISDOM
August 10 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 amTicket Admission
Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-1896) published more than 30 books, but it was her best-selling anti-slavery novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin that catapulted her to international celebrity and secured her place in history. She believed her actions could make a positive difference, and indeed, her words changed the world. Harriet Beecher Stowe’s writing career spanned 51 years. She published 30 books and countless short stories, poems, articles, and hymns. With her writing, Stowe could publicly express her thoughts and beliefs in a time when women were discouraged from public speaking, and could not vote or hold office.
