“A delightful way to make history come alive. As Florence Nightingale Kitty Gardner recalls her memories of childhood as well as her accomplishments as a woman. Ms. Gardner’s genuine enthusiasm succeeds in carrying a whole classroom back with her to confront the power and value of one extraordinary woman’s dream.” Linda R. Weltner, Author,No Place Like Home, Columnist, “Ever so Humble”, Boston Globe.
“Kitty Gardner was superb in the role of Abigail Adams. She had the children and me believing that we were actually in the President’s House in the year 1800. Ms. Gardner lost herself and became Abagail Adams in a performance that showed depth of understanding and creative response to audience questions. She showed an incredible ability to understand the intellect and soul of Abagail Adams.” Ann Marie Dellaferra, Counselor, Amherset Middle School, Amherst, New Hampshire, 03031
