Strohm, who completed a joint major in threatre and history, will discuss her writing process and how she developed ideas for her book. The Henry Sheldon Museum is an appropriate setting for the talk because the book is about a teenage girl who takes on an internship at an historical museum in Maine. While at Middlebury, Strohm volunteered at the Sheldon Museum and blossomed into a full-fledged history buff.
After graduation Strohm acted her way around the country (performing in 25 states) before settling in New York City to write. Her second book will be called “Confederates Don’t Wear Couture.”
The talk is intended for an adult audience, but teens are welcome too. For more information call the Sheldon Museum at 388-2117.
