Program Description

Event Details

Asia Booth was the chronicler of the Booth family's greatest triumphs and most heartbreaking failures. Throughout her life, Asia recorded such moments in letters to her friend, Jean Anderson. In her writings, Asia told of her life on the family farm of Tudor Hall, her ever-changing relationships with her siblings, and the tragedy that forever stained the Booth name.

Presented by first-person reenactor and Lincoln assassination researcher, Kate Jones, "A Long Look Backward" tells the story of a woman so often torn between the expectations of sisterhood and society.
