2013-WolfeBirthdayFundraiser‘Wolfe’s Women’ is a fundraising event for the Friends of Thomas Wolfe and will help support the programming, outreach and maintenance of the Thomas Wolfe Memorial.

Held on Wolfe’s Birthday, this event will focus on his need to connect with women of wisdom and strength.

Hosted by the Renaissance Hotel’s ‘A Writer’s Bistro’ a four-course meal will be served.

A historic drama will be presented about the four important and inspiring women in Wolfe’s life: Julia Wolfe, Margaret Roberts, Aline Bernstein and Elizabeth Nowell.

Following dinner and drama, guests are invited to an open house of the Old Kentucky Home.  Guests can walk the halls of this house that inspired one of America’s great literary authors and gather in the parlor for an Victorian sing-a-long, much like the boarders would have done when Thomas Wolfe was growing up in the house.

October 3 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

$75.00 per person $140 per couple
