With Author Elaine Weiss
Thursday, June 20
6 – 8 pm
“Both a page-turning drama and an inspiration for every reader” — Hillary Rodham Clinton
Soon to be a major television event, the nail-biting climax of one of the greatest political battles in American history: the ratification of the constitutional amendment that granted women the right to vote. Join Author Elaine Weiss, also the author of Fruits of Victory: The Woman’s Land Army of America in the Great War, as she tells the dramatic story of a pivotal event in the twentieth century—one that people know happened but have little idea of how or why and how it relates to the women of Blithewold.
Refreshments and book signing will take place after the discussion.
