Presented by S.E. Andres of Queens of Queen City
The life of Lillian F. Schwartz is remarkable. From surviving polio and anti-Semitism to serving as a nurse in WWII, the Cincinnati native taught herself art, then applied it to a burgeoning technology in the 70s: computers. Her work would pioneer computer animation, winning an Oscar and an Emmy, and inspire a whole new world (but without the credit).
All are welcome to attend. Must be 18+ or have a parent or legal guardian to attend.
**Streetside Brewery’s kitchen will not be open, but you are welcome to bring food in. Also, a number of restaurants are close by and will deliver, including Taglio, Tusculum Grille and Buz Restaurant.
About Queens of Queen City
What started out as a creative writing project with research rabbit-holed into an extensive, wide-cast, full-fledged research project. Much of this research would never be seen in the creative writing project, though. The website never came to fruition until a trip to the Cincinnati Observatory, in which we discovered the crucial role of women in the first observatory in the U.S., and Louisa Mitchel was not mentioned in any websites, not even on Wikipedia! We aim to shed light on the women we discovered–the women who have changed the arts, sciences, trades, politics and environmental health in the Greater Cincinnati Area.
S. E. Andres is a marketer and writer and former educator. He has a B.S. in Secondary English/Language Arts Education with a focus on women writers during the Civil War and a M.S. in Marketing with a focus on diversity marketing from applied feminist and race theory. His favorite author is Margaret Atwood and loves to be outdoors among the trees and woodland critters when he’s not glued to the computer–writing, researching, and working. He aspires to be Leslie Knope.
