Women’s Suffrage: A Documented History, Reading & Discussion Series
September 21 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:00pm on Thursday, repeating until October 26, 2017
Join us for a reading and discussion series where participants will examine the history of women’s suffrage movement during the 100th anniversary of New York State passage of women’s suffrage.
The discussion leader will be Giacomo Calabria, author of 2014 thriller The Great Abraham Lincoln Pocket Watch Conspiracy. Calabria has been praised by Times Union as “a confident and masterful storyteller.”
We will read about the women’s suffrage movements in the United States and around the world from the American Revolution to the modern era, track changes within the movement, study important speeches, delight over misadventures and anecdotes, listen to recordings from the phonograph to the digital era, and ultimately transform the last 250 years of history into a lens for better appreciating and understanding the nation we live in today.
All required readings are available FREE online.
