Tudor documentary to be shown April 18

JACKSONVILLE — The nonprofit Tasha Tudor Museum presents the PBS documentary, “Take Joy: the Magical World of Tasha Tudor,” on April 18 at 7 pm, at the Jacksonville Municipal Center on Route 100.

Renowned children's book author and illustrator Tasha Tudor (1915-2008) dressed in the style of the 1830s. She cooked over an open fire in her New England farmhouse and lived by the light of candles she made herself. She milked her own goats, and tended a flock of chickens and a menagerie of pets. The film is about 45 minutes long.

The documentary will be followed by a short discussion, including the sharing of personal experiences with Tasha Tudor. There will be a small display of objects and Tudor's books. Books and other items will be available for sale from the museum's gift shop.

Admission is free, and the building is accessible to people with disabilities. Refreshments will be served. For more information, call Betsy McKinley at 802-368-2376. The event is presented by the Whitingham Historical Society and the Whitingham Public Library.
