Mrs. Tarkington Gets the Historical Treatment

The March 2019 edition of the Indiania Historical Society’s “Women Behaving Badly” program features none other than Susannah Tarkington, Booth Tarkington’s second wife and long companion.

The program takes participants through a series of vignettes, each introducing guests to a renegade lady in the shadows of Indiana history. As they rotate from space to space, guests will meet actors portraying these gutsy women, while enjoying themed snacks connected to an event or period.

“Women Behaving Badly” is presented in partnership with Women4Change Indiana and supported by Upland Brewing Co. The event takes place Thursday, March 21, from 7 to 9:30 p.m., at the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center, located at 450 W. Ohio St. in downtown Indianapolis.

Registration is $20, $16 for IHS members or $25 at the door. Admission includes light snacks and one drink ticket. Guests are encouraged to sign up in advance, as space is limited. To register, visit or call IHS at 317-232-1882.
