Through their fiscal sponsor, Friends of the Harriet Beecher Stowe House (FOHBSH), Harriet Beecher Stowe: Her Transformative Ohio Years was awarded a grant from the Ohio Humanities (OH), a State affiliate of The National Endowment for the Humanities.  Harriet Beecher Stowe: Her Transformative Ohio Years will tell the story of the writer’s life in Cincinnati, Ohio and how these life-changing experiences contributed to her best-selling novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin.  Beecher-Stowe lived in Cincinnati between 1832 and 1850, and just after her move to Maine, she adapted her Ohio experiences and anti-slavery sentiment into America’s most influential novel.  The documentary is slated for release in the fall of 2019.
