In Her Own Words: The Diaries of Maggie Owen
Storyteller: Mary-Eileen McClear
Sunday, April 21, 2 p.m.
(last performance in series)
Meet Maggie Owen, the irrepressible and indomitable Irish girl whose life led her on wild romps across oceans and continents in the early 20th century. Fate took her from cosseted child to fugitive, from child bride to world-weary woman. There's something for everyone in her true story: laughter, heartbreak, love and war. This concert has been performed at the Toronto Storytelling Festival and at the National Arts Centre's Fourth Stage in Ottawa.
