Historian Glory-June Greiff, a professional narrator and performer, presents a first-person program of the successful naturalist, novelist, and photographer Gene Stratton-Porter (1863-1924), whose environmentalist writings speak volumes to us today. Gene Stratton-Porter reminisces about her early life on a Wabash County farm, tells of her beginnings in writing and photography, and reads from some of her fiction and non-fiction pieces.

Glory-June Greiff is also a public historian and preservation activist who has written scores of successful nominations around the state to the National Register of Historic Places, numerous articles, and two full length books. She has portrayed author and environmentalist, Gene Stratton-Porter many times in recent years, but had first fallen in love with Stratton-Porter's work as a naturalist and photographer after seeing an exhibit in the 1980s of her groundbreaking photographs. Interpreting this remarkable women of a hundred years ago, combines Greiff's work as a historian and environmentalist with her interest in theater.

This program is made possible by a 2017 Arts in the Park grant from the Indiana Arts Commission.
