THREE Chances to Hear Anthology Readers in the next Six Weeks!

THREE Chances to Hear Anthology Readers in the next Six Weeks!

While we await the printed copies of our books – hope to have ordering info soon – here are a few details on the readings coming up soon.  Each setting provides a unique blend of voices of the 22 that are part of this collection!

We start with our launch party on October 26th – 6:30 pm at The History Center in Ithaca.  The History Center is also featuring an exhibit of drawings and lithographs on the Centennial, and visitors can hear the readers, enjoy the exhibit and share in refreshments and our celebration at finally sharing this project!

On Tuesday, November 7th, 7:00, we will be at the Matilda Joslyn Gage Home in Fayetteville, NY.  The homestead – turned – museum is the perfect setting for this reading, as Gage was an important activist and suffragist.

Sunday November 19th, 1:30, will find contributors and the editors at the Women’s Rights National Historical Park in Seneca Falls for an additional reading.  The birthplace of the suffrage movement will be a very special place to hear readers reflect on the events in that spot 100 years ago, and how they relate to modern day women’s issues.

Please join us!
