Performance Reviews:

"We can't thank Nora enough for her wonderful performance for the Hampton Roads Civil War Round Table.  Nora's thorough reseach, dedication, joy, enthusiam, and performance skills made Mildred Childe Lee come alive and inspired us all.   It was a memorable evening!  On behalf of our Round Table, thank you, Nora, for making history come alive." --Anthony Radd, President

“Nora Brooks brought Mildred Lee alive to our audience on that afternoon.   Nora’s interpretation of Mildred’s personality and character exceeded our expectations."   Jon Bachman Educational Events  Coordinator , Stratford Hall

“Anna Jackson, quietly, convincingly, brilliantly left the audience convinced that the woman in the front of the room had indeed lived the narrative she shared with us.”   John Anderson, freelance writer for The Charlotte Observer


“A record number of RCWRT members and guests were in attendance at the Round Table's November meeting to hear Nora Brooks captivate her audience as she introduced those present to the wife of Ulysses S. Grant…it was impossible not to come away with the feeling of having been enriched by the discussion while having been entertained during the process.’

 Raleigh Civil War Round Table Knapsack


"Nora is a highly creative and talented teacher and historian. Her ability to make history "come alive' is most amazing, and Ihave seen her hold groups of adults and students alike absolutely spellbound with her stories and first-person impersonations. She and I have worked together on several different collaborations and she is a very pleasant and dynamic person and a true professional."  Dan Korn, author, re-enactor and AP US History Teacher, Porter Ridge High School, Monroe, NC


"I've had the privilege of witnessing Nora's historical interpretation one-woman show of Anna Morrison Jackson on more than one occasion, and she does a wonderful job of weaving history and biography and personal character together into a spellbinding performance."   Penny Schrum (audience review)
