Do you want an appealing adult program that works well during ANY part of the year? Jim Kleefeld, Ohio's master library presenter, has produced this new program for adults. Ohio's Romantic Tragedies is a 60-minute talk and display of stories and artifacts from the early 1900s. Jim tells stories of couple, famous and unknown whose lives became entwined and then entangled. Ohio's Romantic Tragedies is a presentation adults will love. Jim brings a collection of antique and unusual artifacts and will share the stories behind them. You will see and learn about a 1933 license plate, a strange wedding photo, a rich family that simply squandered away its fame and fortune, and more.
Intriguing tales of love, romance and subsquent tragedy. Hear stories, see displays, investigate history, discover books and research from the 1920s, 30s and 40s, the era of an oft-mis-remembered past. As always, Jim includes many references to the books, papers and online research he has used while investigating these fascinating historical couple and their sometimes-doomed realtionships.

About Jim Kleefeld's ProgramsLike all of Jim's shows, each library program is a professionally scripted show, written with proper sequencing for high and low spots to provide the audience with lots of excitement and prevent their minds from wandering.

Jim's programs are self-contained. He always brings all of his own props and tables, has specially-tailored costuming and carries his wireless "anywhere" sound system. This is a program that can be performed in almost any location: auditoriums, classrooms, meeting rooms large or small, even outdoors. It can be adjusted to be suitable for groups of from 10 to 250. Jim's fee is very reasonable, he never charges extra for mileage, and he gives a discount for multiple shows.
