"Gettysburg: One Woman's War"

In honor of Veterans Day, the West Caldwell Public Library, 30 Clinton Road, will present the one-woman play “Gettysburg: One Woman’s War” featuring equity actress Michèle LaRue on Sunday, November 19 at 2:00 pm in the Community Room. 

This one-woman play is based on three stories from Elsie Singmaster’s classic “Gettysburg,” published in 1913. In Singmaster’s powerful and specific exploration of a Civil War icon’s physical and emotional terrain, fictional townswoman Mary Bowman lives the war and its legacy. Bowman experiences the first shots at Willoughby Run in July 1863, the consolation of President Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address in November 1863, and the country’s healing a half century later. 

This one-woman play, sponsored by the Friends of the Library, is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required. To sign-up, call the Library at 973-226-5441 or sign-up online at http://tinyurl.com/WCPL-Events
