The Women’s Forum of Litchfield welcomes Kathryn Boughton for a program at the Litchfield Community Center at 421 Bantam Road in Litchfield on Thursday, May 4, beginning at 2:30pm.

Kathryn Boughton is a veteran journalist in the tristate region, having worked for three regional newspapers, as managing editor of both The Lakeville Journal and The Litchfield County Times, and in her current capacity as a correspondent for the Republican-American. She has an abiding interest in history and is Town Historian in North Canaan, where she has established and is director of the Canaan History Center, a research center for family and Northwest Corner history.

In her talk, “A Tale of Two Eleanors,” she will explore the similarities between the lives of Eleanor of Aquitaine and Eleanor Roosevelt, powerful women who stood at the center of the world’s stage some eight centuries apart.

The event will be open to non-Forum members with a $10 fee at the door, which includes a High Tea reception. The contacts for more information are 860-605-7207 and info@womensforumoflitchfield.org.
