Character actress Judith Kalaora of “History at Play” returns to Norwood to present “Tinseltown Inventor: the most beautiful woman in the world, Hedy Lamarr,” as part of Women’s History Month. Judith’s previous performance about Deborah Samson Gannett, a Revolutionary War hero, was a packed house, so her Hedy Lamarr performance will likely fill up quickly!

To sign up for this event, partially funded by a grant from the Norwood Cultural Council, please call 781-769-0200, x110 or 222, email norprograms@minlib.net, or stop by the library Reference or Information Desk.
