Chautauqua Tent… Returning this year!

It is noble to teach oneself; it is nobler to teach others – and less trouble. –Mark Twain

The National Park Service and Hoover Presidential Foundation are bringing back the popular Chautauqua Tent for 2018!  Located across from the Birthplace Cottage, the tent features educational programming for all ages.

Abraham Lincoln

We’re happy to welcome back Michael Krebs as Abraham Lincoln!  Michael has played Lincoln in a variety of capacities, for educational programs and even appearing in videos.  Check out more photos and videos at the With Lincoln website or Facebook!  Abraham Lincoln will be presenting at 11:30 on Saturday.

Mark Twain

This year’s Chautauqua Tent will also feature Mark Twain, presented by Warren Brown.  Warren Brown does a variety of Mark Twain programs for all ages.  Check out more of what he has to offer at his website or Facebook.  Mark Twain will be at the tent at 1:30 on Saturday!

Smith Studio Jazz with Suzanne Smith

In the spirit of the Chautauqua movement, there will also be a music program at our tent this year!  Smith Studio Jazz started in 2009 when two musicians started meeting with Suzanne Smith to work on jazz improvisation.  More friends joined and the band grew, and now they perform real music with a full lineup of experienced musicians!  Check them out on Facebook here and during HHTD on Saturday afternoon at 3:00.
