Postponed: One More Time Book Club Discussion
Alice Paul: Claiming Power
Celebrate Women’s History Month and the 100th Anniversary of Women’s Right to Vote with the One More Time Book Club group, which is forming now to read and discuss just one more book: J.D. Zahniser’s Alice Paul: Claiming Power.
At 28 years old, Alice Stokes Paul led a media campaign that turned attention from President Elect Woodrow Wilson’s first inauguration toward the demand for women’s right to vote. She participated in the first group protest in front of the White House, which lasted 18 months. Although she sustained verbal and physical attacks, threats, and maltreatment in jail, Paul remained an advocate for women’s rights until her death in 1977.
Anne Brataas and Joan Drury will facilitate the discussion at Grand Marais Public Library on Wednesday, March 25, 2020 at 1 PM. No registration is required. Come even if you have not finished reading the book, which is now available through the library and Drury Lane Books.
This event was inspired by the Frances Perkins book discussion that took place February 5th at the library, and it is made possible by community partnership between the Grand Marais Public Library, Drury Lane Books, and Minnesota Children’s Press.
