Historian Erin Anderson portrays Hattie Winters, a civil war wife from Hope. Her husband William, a small businessman, volunteered to join the Union Army, Company 1 of the 67th Indiana Infantry in 1862. Anderson’s portrayal shows Hattie as she deals with the personal fear that comes with that, the mother of small children who’s now raising them on her own, a homemaker who trying to hold everything together while her husband’s away fighting, a friend to others who are facing the same struggles as she is, as well as how she and others in Hope deal with death at home and on the war front.

Mike Hemmelgarn’s 45-minute program incorporates ventriloquism, juggling, balloons, a touch of magic and audience participation. Hemmelgarn has been fascinated with ventriloquism since the age of eight and juggling since the age of sixteen. He sold newspaper subscriptions door to door to earn money to purchase his first “dummy”, a hardwood puppet named “Bob”. He learned to juggle with tennis balls and has evolved to bowling balls, garden weasels, and even juggles a bowling ball, apple and a plunger…while eating the apple! This program is sponsored by the Bartholomew County Library Associates.
