GLOUCESTER’S OWN DR. HANNAH KIMBERLEY FEATURED ON PBS SPECIAL: UNLADYLIKE 2020!! VIDEO HERE!

Yes, I’m a damn proud husband today. After watching years, and years, and years of archiving, research, studying, and interviews, my wife’s book came to fruition. It’s a story of one of the most accomplished mountain climbers in American history, and history almost left her behind, that is, until Hannah found her for us all. The climber was Annie Smith Peck, and the book Hannah authored is A Woman’s Place is at the Top (St. Martins Press).

Well, today it has come full circle! This amazing production filled some extremely talented women approached Hannah about being a part of this stunning and amazing special. So please, take a few minutes to be entertained and maybe even inspired!!

Hannah is in one video that is part of a series. From March 4 through August 26, 2020, UNLADYLIKE2020 will be releasing 26 short films and a broadcast hour on PBS American Masters profiling diverse and little-known American women from the turn of the 20th century, and contemporary women who follow in their footsteps. The video that features Hannah is narrated by Lorraine Toussaint from “Orange Is the New Black” and the film “Selma.” And the voiceover for Annie Peck is performed by Julianna Margulies from the television series” ER” and “The Good Wife.” So Hannah is in good company!

Great job Dr.K!!!
