Mary Jane Bradbury to Perform at Library
North Lake County Public Library in Polson will host the Humanities Montana Speakers Bureau program “Well-Behaved Women Rarely Make History: Women in Science” with Mary Jane Bradbury on Thursday, April 14, 2016. The program will be at 2:00 p.m. in the library meeting room. It is free and open to the public.
Mary Jane Bradbury is a scholar and actress who brings history to life for audiences of all ages in the Rocky Mountain region. She has been an artist in residence at the C.M. Russell Museum in Great Falls, and teaches for Humanities Montana and Colorado Humanities. Bradbury is also an historic interpreter for the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.
This program will draw on the lives and writings of science pioneers like Martha Maxwell, Rocky Mountain naturalist; Maria Mitchell, astronomer; Ruth Underhill, anthropologist; and Rachel Carson, biologist. Join us for a fascinating look at these early female scientists and the challenging world in which they followed their passion.
Partial funding for this Speakers Bureau program is provided by a legislative grant from Montana’s Cultural Trust, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the North Lake County Public Library Foundation.
