Friends event focuses on Rosemary Clooney
The Friends of the Boyle County Public Library’s annual Meeting and Tea will feature “Rosemary Clooney — A Sentimental Journey,” presented by Bet Stewart. It will be 4:30 p.m. Thursday at the library in the community room. Everyone is welcome and refreshments will be served.
Stewart’s Kentucky Chautauqua program, offered with the support of the Kentucky Humanities Council, will relive memories of Rosemary Clooney, a Kentucky native who was born in Maysville. Kentucky Humanities Council writes, “behind this small-town-girl-rises-to-fame story is also one of extraordinary perserverance and dedication, one that teaches that it is possible to overcome the worst to become the best.”
Bet Stewart is the artistic director of Intuition Theatre in Cincinnati and author of 19 original plays about various social and historical topics, including American popular music, addiction and 20th-century history. She earned her bachelor’s degree in speech, theater and communication arts from University of Cincinnati. She has served as an artist-on-tour for the Ohio Arts Council, as an artist in schools for the Kentucky Center for the Arts and as a participant in the Kentucky Arts Council’s Arts in Education program.
