Author/Character Interpreter

Anne Chancey Dalton’s passion for living history is contagious—she has fun and so does the audience. When she says she loves what she’s doing, the usual response is, "That’s obvious!"

Dressed in period clothes, Mrs. Dalton as a character interpreter uses information from historical research to portray individuals. Hands-on artifacts make history come alive as she tells interesting and funny stories. The intensity increases as the audience’s perception of her fades and a person from the past takes her place.

Mrs. Dalton answers questions simply and enthusiastically. Her goal is to increase students’ self-esteem as she motivates them to read and write.
