Join us this fall in marking the Centennial of Women’s Suffrage in New York State. Facilitator Susan Goodier will lead us in a Reading and Discussion series every other Wednesday, starting August 30th at 6:30 pm. The history of the women’s suffrage movement in our state and nation spanned seventy years, from the 1848 meeting convened by Elizabeth Cady Stanton in Seneca Falls to the tactics wielded by Alice Paul, and includes overlooked stories and actors such as the African-American suffragists. Our book selections — which include history, biography, and fiction — provide a window into this chapter of American social progress and a springboard into ongoing discussions of women’s — and by extension, our society’s — past, present, and future. A Reading & Discussion Program funded by Humanities NY and Huntington Memorial Library with Facilitator Susan Goodier (SUNY Oneonta). Registration is required. Please call or stop in to the Library to register. This program is part of HML’s Fall 2017 Women in History Series.
Session Dates: Aug. 30th (Intro/First book handed out), Sept.13th, Sept. 20th, Oct. 11th, Oct. 25th, Nov. 8th.
Books will be made available for loan for the first 15 people.
