Themes in SCHS events and programs

Weaving together SCHS events and programs are themes. There is one this Winter of 2014: women and race. There is another theme going on all year and that is the celebration of the 250th anniversary of the founding of St. Louis.

Women and Race theme

SCHS theme "Women and Race"The women and race theme involves the reading of the book, Mrs. Lincoln’s Dressmaker: A Novel and two presentations; “Sunlight and Shadow: Women’s Spaces at White Haven” and “Ulysses and Julia: The White House Years.” At present, this theme is set to run in winter 2014 into the spring. There are no other events or programs planned for this theme. It is the two presentations, the book and the book discussion and sharing time on Feb 17.

See more about the book and the discussion about, Mrs. Lincoln’s Dressmaker: A Novel on the page Book Reading. On that page there is also more information about the book discussion on February 17. So if you missed the first book discussion in January, you get a second chance.

To learn more about the events that are part of the theme, see page Women and Race.


St. Louis 250 theme

SCHS theme "St Louis 250"The St. Louis 250th anniversary theme involves presentations and tours. There are two presentations: “St. Louis Folklore: Mom, Clean Underwear, and Toasted Ravioli” by Dr. John Oldani in January and daytime presentation at Tesson Ferry library, “250 Years of St. Louis History” on February 21st, along with a tour to the Missouri History Museum in July to see the free exhibit, “250 in 250,” which celebrates the 250th anniversary of the founding of St. Louis.



At present, this theme is set to run from winter 2014 into the summer, but it may continue throughout the year of 2014, so there could be other events and programs planned for this theme. At present it is the two presentations and the tour.

See more about the theme of St. Louis’ 250th anniversary on the pages Dr John Oldani – St. Louis Folklore and St Louis 250.
