"Women Heroes Transforming History: The Creation of
Joan of Arc,"
A Talk at Hopkins

Playwright Laura Harrington will talk about heroic women and Joan of Arc, the 15th century French martyr, at Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, March 13 at noon.

Harrington, a lecturer at M.I.T., has written for film, radio, television and theater. Her latest endeavor is the first musical based on the life of Joan of Arc. In collaboration with composer Mel Marvin, who wrote the music for Tintypes on Broadway, Harrington breaks new ground by examining previously unexplored periods in this saint's life. Her interest in Joan of Arc is focused on the most vulnerable time of her life, her year- long imprisonment.

The talk is part of the Wednesday Noon Series, presented by The Johns Hopkins University's Office of Special Events. All programs are held at noon in the Clipper Room of Shriver Hall at the University's Homewood campus at 3400 N. Charles Street. Admission is free. For information, call the Office of Special Events at (410) 516-7157.
