American Girl Samantha and the Suffragette
July 19, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm| Free
As a special event for the Summer Reading Program for children, Oneida Public Library has scheduled for a family program on women’s suffrage designed for the occasion by Teresa Wood, who is the creator and owner of History Houses in Rochester, N.Y. Wood, a former elementary-school teacher, presents programs on aspects of American history using dollhouses, books, American Girl and Boy dolls and educational activities. Wood has specially designed a suffragette program for the OPL around the American Girl doll Samantha. The program is part of the OPL’s 2017 Centennial Celebration of Women’s Suffrage in N.Y.S. This program was funded in part by a Humanities New York Action Grant.
