(March 3, 2015) – On Wednesday, March 18 at 7:00 p.m., the Westfield Memorial Library will present Linda Kenyon, performing as athlete Babe Didrikson. The library is located at 550 East Broad Street.
American’s greatest female athlete, Mildred Ella Didrikson was born in Texas 1911. She combined raw talent, hard work, and an unquenchable thirst for winning in a world in which women were not allowed or encouraged to be athletic, competitive, ambitious or sweaty.
Today, it is not unusual to have women competing in sports. Not many years ago, this was a revolutionary idea - and Babe led the revolution.
In 1953, Babe was diagnosed with cancer. Until she died several years later, she publicized her condition, served as a spokesperson for The American Cancer Society, and raised millions for cancer research while competing as a golfer.
This visibility was also revolutionary because cancer was not talked about in the America of the 1950's.
Linda Kenyon delighted the audience when she appeared at the library last year as Julia Child in “Julia says, 'Bon Appétit!'” She has appeared in Renaissance Festivals, Shakespeare Theatre companies, on television, and on stage. She is a multi-faceted actress with a passion for portrayals of strong, pioneering women.
The program is free and open to Westfield Memorial Library and MURAL cardholders, but you must sign up. (MURAL cardholders belong to libraries that are part of the Middlesex Union Reciprocal Agreement Libraries. Check with your library to see if your library participates.) To register for the program, visit the library’s website at www.wmlnj.org, click on the Online Calendar, or call 908.789.4090 option 0.
Founded in 1879, the Westfield Memorial Library—the community’s destination for discovery and ideas—engages minds, entertains spirits and facilitates lifelong learning for people of all ages. Hours are 9:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday; 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Friday and Saturday; and 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday.
