Join us for a living history portrayal of the heroine Abbie Burgess Grant by 7th grader Melanie Rosenberg.
As Abbie Burgess, Melanie will share the harrowing story of tending the Matinicus Rock Light for nearly a month while her father was away from the island and what it was like to become a well-known heroine. Melanie will also share some discoveries she made during research which might surprise people who kow Abbie’s story only through children’s stories. After the performance, Melanie will answer audience questions as both in and out of character. Melanie is part of a living history performance group located in Colorado.
