Women’s studies program to host event

By Staff | Feb 25, 2011

On March 22, Friends of the Shepherdstown Library and the Women’s Studies Program at Shepherd University will present the tale of a 1950s housewife who became a dynamic activist for the Equal Rights Amendment.

The program will take place at 7:30 p.m. at the Shepherdstown War Memorial Building.

Ellouise Schoettler, a well-known professional storyteller, has been spinning tales for nearly 20 years. This program, “Pushing Boundaries,” is her own story of transformation. A fellow storyteller has said of her that she knows “right where the heart and funnybone reside in us all.”

Tickets are now on sale at the Shepherdstown Public Library.

All proceeds from the event will go to support library programs. Admission price is $15. Students will be admitted free. Seating is limited, so tickets should be purchased in advance, if possible.

The War Memorial Building (Shepherdstown Men’s Club), is located at the corner of German and King Streets in Shepherdstown.
