Betty Jean Steinshouer - Through The Eyes Of The Author

Renowned Chautauqua influenced speaker Betty Jean Steinshouer will present a view of Florida's history through the eyes of three eminent authors -- Harriet Beecher Stowe, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, and Marjory Stoneman Douglas -- at LaBelle Heritage Museum's third of four 2015/2016 Special Speaker Programs, made possible by a collaboration with the Clewiston Museum in a grant from the Florida Humanities Council, on Wednesday, February 17, at 7 p.m. 

The museum is located at 360 North Bridge Street, and overflow parking is available at Harold P. Curtis Honey Co., 355 North Bridge Street, immediately across the street from the museum courtesy of Rene Curtis Pratt.

Betty Jean Steinshouer, no stranger to LaBelle Heritage Museum regular program attendees, will assume the character of each of the three renowned authors for her presentation in LaBelle and will also appear at the Clewiston Museum, 109 Central Avenue, on Thursday, February 18, also at 7 p.m., in a similar but entirely different program in which she assumes the persona of various women writers who escaped to Florida over the years for a variety of reasons. Both programs are open to the public at no charge as they are funded by the Florida Humanities Council through its grants program.
