Molly Brown: Hardscrabble to high society – a historical program with Jessica Michna

July 14 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


The Friends of the Mercer Public Library invite you to join us for another riveting performance by Jessica Michna on Sunday, July 14 at 2:00 p.m. Michna has performed at the Mercer Library as Helen Keller, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Katherine Wright, and we are looking forward to her appearance as Molly Brown this summer!

Remembered as “The Unsinkable” Molly Brown, the lady was more than a survivor of the Titanic disaster. Gold prospector, gambler, and card shark barely scratches the surface of this brave, dynamic woman of the early 20th century. Learn of Molly’s fascinating life and meet some of the interesting characters she met along the way.

Jessica Michna founded her company, “First Impressions,” in the year 2000 to share her love of theater and history. In 2016, she was awarded the Presidential Service Center’s Distinguished Service award for her riveting portrayals of First Ladies. While she has appeared before a wide range of audiences, including appearances at the National Churchill Museum, the Lincoln Boyhood Home National Site, and Valley Forge, Jessica is particularly fond of performing for senior groups and communities. Her repertoire now includes over 20 historical women, including several U.S. First Ladies, figures from important eras in American history, and more.

This program is free and open to all. For more information, call the library at 715-476-2366.
