"This is woman’s hour The Life of Mary Baker Eddy" is on display at the Robert J. Kibbee Library of Kingsborough Community College, 2001 Oriental Blvd., now through Aug. 13.

Eddy (1821-1910) was a noted healer, founder of Christian Science, founder and publisher of the Christian Science Monitor (at age 87), and author. (In 1992, her "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," published in 1875, was recognized by the Women’s National Book Association as one of 75 written by women whose "words have changed the world.")

Videos, interactive listening stations, news clippings and photographs tell the story of this 19th-century reformer.

"This is Woman’s Hour " was prepared by The Writings of Mary Baker Eddy in Boston, Mass. in conjunction with the National Park Service and featured as an "untold story" at the Women’s Rights National Park in Seneca Falls, N.Y., from March through May of 1998.

The exhibit is open Monday through Thursday, 9 am to 9 pm, in July, and Monday through Thursday, 9 am to 5 pm, in August. The library is closed Fridays-Sundays. For more information, log onto www.marybakereddylibrary.org.
