Katharine Hepburn: From Hartford to Hollywood

With a stage and film career that spanned six decades, Katharine Hepburn is an American icon. Born and raised in Connecticut, Hepburn had a career in stage, film and television that reflected the changing role of women in American society. Challenging the norms of the day, she took control of her image and identity by establishing a unique sense of style which influenced countless women, fashion designers, and the informal, elegant approach to American style that continues to resonate today. Join the CT Historical Society at a program that tells the story of her life-long ties to Connecticut and offers a complete picture of how Hepburn became the woman and the star she was.  This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library, and it requires registration.
