On Sunday, Feb. 27 at the Pember Library, Town Historian Edith Sparling will present “Granville Women — Their Story” – a show and tell about the life of an acclaimed local photographer, an artist and writer, a nationally honored Cornell graduate, and a community- minded woman whose wealth and generosity have enriched Granvilie.
Sparling will speak about Nellie Sykes Lewis, Nina Van Shaik Butler, Stella Wilson Butler, Lydia Beulah Independence Jones, and Ellen Wood Pember and exhibit artifacts of their times, one being an 1890s glass plate camera.
The Granville Heritage Society will hold a brief annual meeting following the program, which is open to the public.
