This thrilling story of Edith Rockefeller McCormick, daughter of America's foremost industrialist, John D. Rockefeller, is complete with sex, money, mental illness, and a woman who strove for the independence to make her own choices. Rejecting the limited gender role carved out for her by her father and the society in which she lived, Edith Rockefeller McCormick forged her own path, despite pushback from her family and, ultimately, financial ruin.

Join author Andrea Friederici Ross and historical performer Ellie Carlson as they bring Edith to life for this very special virtual program about one of Lake Forest's most dynamic individuals.
