A. Pasquale in Liberty BellesThank you so much for the superb program (Liberty Belles) you presented at the Riverdale Public School on Tuesday, March 18th 2008. The students and faculty were captivated by your charismatic storytelling through acting, music and imagery.

Anne Pasquale was great! I would like to see other Living History shows. I believe she would do a great job portraying any woman from history. (Suggestions: first woman in sports/medicine/science/politics.)
