In this presentation of Victorian Gossip Girl: Annie Adams Fields, History At PlayTM, LLC Founder and Artistic Director Judith Kalaora is Annie Fields, the Boston literary scout, author, and philanthropist. Mrs. Fields had an incredible influence on literary decisions at her husband's Tremont Street publishing house - Ticknor and Fields (the forerunner to Houghton Mifflin Publishing Company) - and had a great ear for gossip! Counting Nathaniel Hawthorne, Oliver Wendell Holmes, and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow amongst her closest friends, she witnessed a great deal of Victorian revelry at her waterside museum in Beacon Hill. No short of a Gossip Girl, Mrs. Fields wrote about her guests' embarrassing moments in her novel Authors and Friends and shares them with you during an intimate teatime conversation.
Josh Lederman, NBC News Political Correspondent, attests: "History At Play connects the dots between the characters that made up our past and the events they shaped that still influence our lives." Jordan Rich, of CBS WBZ Radio, states that Judith Kalaora, the Founder & Artistic Director of History At Play, LLC, is "a one-woman force of nature and inhabits these women...it takes people like her to bring these stories to life...these lost pieces of history."
