Kate’s Cottage with Mike Bielewa
Thursday, February 16 12 p.m.- 2 p.m.
Elegant and outspoken, Katharine Hepburn was named by the American Film Institute as the greatest female star in the history of American cinema. During the summers of 1957 and 1960, the spirited actress celebrated her craft by performing at the American Shakespeare Festival in Stratford, Connecticut.
Presented by author and filmmaker Michael J. Bielawa, this lively talk brings to focus the cultural icon’s stay in Stratford, thoughts on Shakespeare, and an intimate look at Kate’s Cottage, the little waterfront cabin where Ms. Hepburn helped bring Shakespeare’s works to life. The short film Along the Shores of Memory: The Katharine Hepburn Cottage will also be shown.
