It’s Not Too Late! Read February’s selection in the “Votes for Women! 19th Amendment Book Club”

The first title in Angelica Community Radio’s suffrage book club is Seneca Falls and the Origins of the Women’s Rights Movement by Sally G. McMillen. Participants read books in advance then gather for a facilitated discussion led by Rusty Tobin of Belmont. 

This title will be discussed on Thursday, February 27th at 6:00 p.m. in the Meeting Room of the Angelica Grange Hall on Park Circle, Angelica, NY. This program is free and open to the public. If you’d like to read the book in advance and join the discussion, call 585-466-5031 or email 19thbookclub@gmail.com

From the publisher: “In Seneca Falls and the Origins of the Woman's Rights Movement, Sally McMillen unpacks, for the first time, the full significance of the revolutionary convention that changed the course of women's history. The book covers 50 years of women's activism, from 1840-1890, focusing on four extraordinary figures--Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucy Stone, and Susan B. Anthony. McMillen tells the stories of their lives, how they came to take up the cause of women's rights, the astonishing advances they made during their lifetimes, and the lasting and transformative effects of the work they did.”

The "Votes for Women! 19th Amendment Book Club” continues with the following titles:
⦁ March 26: Elizabeth Cady Stanton: An American Life by Lori D. Ginzberg
⦁ April 30: Women Will Vote: Winning Suffrage in New York State by Karen Pastorello and Susan Goodier
⦁ May 28: A Woman’s Crusade: Alice Paul and the Battle for the Ballot by Mary Walton

Anyone wishing to read and join the discussion of one or more these books can borrow a copy by calling 585-466-5031 or email: 19thbookclub@gmail.com. This program is made possible in part with funds from Humanities NY, with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
