Join Meet Me St. Louis for a delicious continental breakfast and the captivating life stories of two women whose achievements, while overlooked by history, have proven highly important to modern life. Hedy Lamarr – the glamorous, 1940s movie star who escaped the Nazis for Hollywood, international intrigue, and scientific invention, including technology leading to our modern day cell phones, Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth. Clementine Churchill – the brilliant wife of Winston Churchill. Her unsung influence helped shape two World Wars, advanced the women’s suffrage movement, and left a lasting impact on women in politics today.
