Mother! The Story of Mary Harris Jones
April 23 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The “most dangerous woman in America” is coming to the Buena Vista Public Library! Union organizer, rabble-rouser and child rights advocate, Mary Harris Mother Jones was only 10 years old when she left famine-stricken Ireland. Overcoming inconceivable personal tragedy, Mary Jones dedicated her life to serving the sick and fighting for fair labor laws. This one-woman, 60-minute play stars the incomparable Jan Justis, a nationally recognized dancer and winner of the Alliance for Colorado Theatre’s Educator Award.
No registration required; audience capped at 50 attendees.
