The Max G. Selma Historical Museum will present a tribute to the late Gloria Vnderbilt as part of its “Sweet Tea and Spicy Talk” event series, with the tribute planned for Wednesday, July 10, 2019.
According to Eric Jackson, historian and host of the event:
“Gloria Vanderbilt was an American Icon. Her life was one of highs and lows but throughout it she remained positive. Gloria Vanderbilt, member of the American Dynasty family, was a fashion and cultural dynamo, her death last month was mourned by millions.”
The tribute will be held as the kickoff of the Museum’s summer program: Sweet Tea and Spicy Talk. This is the second year of this program, which was so popular the museum brought it back for a second summer. Sweet Tea and Spicy Talk is a community event that brings neighbors together for cold iced tea, cookies, conversation, and fellowship.
Each Wednesday in July, there will be a talk of historical importance. The scheduled events are:
- Wednesday, July 10, 2019 @ 11am: A Tribute to Gloria Vanderbilt
- Wednesday, July 17, 2019 @ 11am: The Real Downton Abbey
- Wednesday, July 24, 2019 @ 11am: To the Moon and Back – 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing
