Warm up to spring and Women's History Month with a viewing of "Trail Magic," a documentary about Emma "Grandma" Gatewood. Emma Caldwell was born in Gallia County, Ohio and married Perry Gatewood.

This 50-minute film about Grandma Gatewood's life and travels will be followed by a Q&A session with film producer Bette Lou Higgins of Eden Valley Enterprises. This program is presented in collaboration with Kendal's Third Thursday program series.
