Behind every man, there is a woman, and behind John Ringling stood Mable. Come hear this “farm to table” story of how Mable Ringling grew up on an Ohio farm and ended up at the most beautiful table in Sarasota, in her home at Ca d’Zan. In a costumed presentation, she will share the stories, in words and in pictures, of her life and times, in the early part of the 20th century, when she was the woman behind the man who ran
“The Greatest Show on Earth.”
