Episode 29: A Most Notorious Woman : In this episode, we speak with author and biographer Anne Chambers. Her book “Grace O’Malley: The Biography of Ireland’s Pirate Queen 1530-1603” is now celebrating its 40th anniversary. We also talk to award-winning actress and Smithsonian scholar Mary Ann Jung about her entertaining performance as Grace O’Malley and other iconic women that inspire a love of history, drama and literature in classrooms and beyond. Finally, writer Susan Thorton Hobby, a board member of HoCoPoLitSo (Howard County Poetry & Literature Society) and contributing editor of the Little Patuxent Review, reads a poem from Anne Chambers’ book and discusses the local literary scene.
