From Sidelines to Headlines:
The Intrepid Nellie Bly
How often does one get the chance to converse with a historical heroine? Here’s your chance to hear from her own lips the life story of pioneering journalist Nellie Bly!
In the living history program From Sidelines to Headlines: the Intrepid Nellie Bly, a costumed Sharon Twickler portrays the Victorian journalist on a lecture tour following her record-breaking 72-day solo trip around the world. In this hour-long program, Nellie reflects on the challenges of proving herself in the male-dominated newsroom followed by a Q&A session with the audience.
Talk to Sharon about having Nellie speak at your school, community center, or museum.
