Branch to co-sponsor National Writers Series event featuring Elaine Weiss!

Our Branch is pleased to co-sponsor a NWS event featuring Elaine Weiss. Elaine is an award-winning journalist and writer whose work has appeared in The Atlantic, Harper’s, The New York Times, and The Christian Science Monitor. Her latest book, which will be the focus of her appearance, is The Woman’s Hour, the Battle Over the 19th Amendment Comes Alive. This book, as well another of her books, Fruits of Victory: The Woman’s Land Army of America in the Great War, explores the lives of American women in the late 1910s.

Imaginatively conceived and vividly written, The Woman’s Hour gives us a stirring history of women’s long journey to suffrage and to political influence.” —Blanche Wiesen Cook, author of the New York Times bestseller, Eleanor Roosevelt

The NWS event will be streaming June 11, 7:00 pm EST. Host is Susan Odgers, local psychologist and columnist. Note: even though the event is free, you must register for it.
