Larissa Taylor (history) was invited to give an open question/discussion session March 30 based on her book The Virgin Warrior at the off-Broadway production of George Bernard Shaw’s Saint Joan. A number of Colby alums and relatives attended. “It is an amazing play,” said Taylor, “whose actors stunned me with their brilliant and versatile performances.” Taylor is also headed to France at the end of the April for a joint British/German TV documentary to accompany Ken Follett’s books Pillars of the Earth and World Without End. The focus will be on medieval women, especially Joan of Arc, Hildegard of Bingen, and Marguerite Porete.
