The University of Louisville’s College of Arts and Sciences is offering the 7:30 p.m.-9 p.m. program and refreshments at Locust Grove, 561 Blankenbaker Lane.
Panelists will be Daniel Vivian, UofL assistant professor of history and director of the graduate program in public history, and Carol Ely, executive director of Historic Locust Grove Inc. and adjunct history professor at UofL.
Vivian and Ely will discuss the opportunities and challenges of using costumed interpreters to represent real people in situations that are fictionalized for presentation.
The Locust Grove interpreters will talk in character about events in 1816 as they portray household members of the William and Lucy Croghan family, who lived in the Louisville home.
