"The Work of 1000" at Emerson College | Nov. 14

This award-winning documentary by local filmmakers Susan Edwards and Dorie Clark tells the inspiring story of how Stoddart, a self-described ordinary woman in Groton, Massachusetts, was able to accomplish the extraordinary in mobilizing the clean-up of the Nashua River, beginning in the early 1960s. The Nashua River, which flows through north central Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire, was once one of the 10 most-polluted rivers in America.

Emerson professor and filmmaker Bob Nesson, the director of photography for the documentary, will moderate the question and answer session; Stoddart will sign books and videos after the program. The general public is invited to attend this free event.
