Library of Congress archivist and dance curator Libby Smigel delivered an illustrated talk on how to utilize the library’s resources and collections. Her presentation focused on Fall River Legend, a 1948 ballet that interprets the sensational murder case of Lizzie Borden, who on June 20, 1893, was acquitted of killing her father and stepmother with a hatchet; though the ballet finds her guilty as charged. The U.S. Capitol Historical Society hosted this event as part of a series on Congress and the arts. close
