Join me Saturday, June 22nd for the Historical Fiction Readers’ Festival & Book Signing in Oxon Hill, Maryland. I’ll be co-presenting a workshop with award winning historical fiction and non-fiction author, Nicole Evelina on three famous couples who carried the banner for U.S. women’s suffrage. (1:15-2:15) Afterward, I’ll sign copies of my historical titles, including my suffragette romance, VANQUISHED, and chat with readers at the book fair. (3:45-5:15)
DYNAMIC DUOS: Husbands and Wives Who Worked Together during the Women’s Suffrage Movement. [Nicole Evelina & Hope Tarr] The words “women’s suffrage movement” conjure images of outspoken women who were either spinsters or fought against male prejudice to achieve their goal. But suffragists actually had many male supporters, and several leaders campaigned side-by-side with their husbands. Nicole Evelina and Hope C. Tarr will introduce you to three such dynamic duos—Lucy Stone and her husband Henry Blackwell; Virginia Minor and her husband Francis Minor; and Carrie Chapman Catt and her second husband George Catt—and will explore how their partnership and mutual support helped them become living examples of equality among the sexes.
