Preservation Thursday: Mirror, Mirror on the Wall, I am My Mother After All

DEADWOOD – In honor of Women’s History Month and in conjunction with Deadwood History, Inc. and the Deadwood Historic Preservation Commission, South Dakota Humanities Council Speakers’ Bureau Scholar, Phyllis Schrag will present a lecture at 12:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 28, 2019, at the Homestake Adams Research and Cultural Center (HARCC), 150 Sherman Street, Deadwood. The event is wheelchair accessible. Please feel free to bring your lunch.

You say or do something and you wonder, “where did that come from?” only to remember your mother said and did that and suddenly you realize you have become your mother. In a PowerPoint™ presentation, audience members will be reminded of common expressions used by our mothers, along with humorous stories that help us understand the powerful gene pool from which we came. The presentation also includes inspiring quotes attributed to notable famous women of all generations.
