The seventh annual Bishop Hill Chautauqua will be this Saturday, August 24th, from 11:00 am until 5:00 pm. The theme this year is “An Encounter With Visionaries.” The re-enactors will bring to life four characters who changed the world: the pioneering biologist Charles Darwin; a leader in the effort to win women the right to vote, Susan B. Anthony; botanist and civil rights hero, George Washington Carver; and the first singer/songwriter to win the Nobel Prize, Bob Dylan!
At 1 pm, Annette Baldwin will take the stage as Women’s Rights Advocate Susan B Anthony. She was the bold, courageous and unstoppable leader of the Woman’s Suffrage Movement. Chicago-area actress Annette M. Baldwin has lectured and performed on the woman’s suffrage movement for over 20 years.
