50 Years without Natalie Clifford Barney: A Celebration of Life, Art, & Friendship
February 2 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm
You’re invited to join us on Wed, Feb 2nd from 12-12:30pm to celebrate and honor the incredible life of Natalie Clifford Barney, a Daytonian ahead of her time. (this is a free event, outdoors)
It’s been 50 years since her death. As they remember her in Paris, her adopted home, they’ve invited us to honor her here in Dayton too. Professor Samuel Dorf (UD), author of a Natalie Clifford Barney biography “Performing Antiquity” is arranging this event with help from Libby Ballengee and others. We’re planning to read poetry and remember this amazing lady.
*This is an outdoor event* at Natalie’s historic marker by the Main Branch of the Dayton Library in Cooper Park.
