Nellie Bly Around the World in 72 Days

September 21st at 7:00pm

Nellie Bly Around the World in 72 Days is an illustrated lecture with magic lantern slides recounting the famed woman reporter’s 1889-90 around-the-world journey, setting out to beat the 80 days of the fictional Phileas Fogg from the popular Jules Verne novel. The dramatic account of her race to beat the 80-day record contains many picturesque descriptions of a bygone world, and is an engaging and witty refutation to the skepticism as to whether a woman could make such an intrepid solo journey.
