VIRTUAL - AuthorsLive: "Stories of Suffragette City"

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Event Details

Please join us for a special live streaming event with the editors of the new short story collection Stories From Suffragette City. It's a collection of short stories that all take place on a single day: October 23, 1915, the day when tens of thousands of women marched up Fifth Avenue, demanding the right to vote in New York City. The characters depicted here, some well-known, others unfamiliar, each inspires and reinvigorates the power of democracy. The collection is edited by well known best selling novelists M.J. Rose and Fiona Davis with contributions from 13 authors and an introduction by Kristin Hannah.

CLICK HERE to purchase a copy of the book from Diane's Books. A limited number of copies of the book signed by editors M.J. Rose and Fiona Davis are available.

Joining the editors will be best selling authors Christina Baker Kline and Megan Chance. This event is co-sponsored by The League of Women Voters of Greenwich and will be introduced by Stephen Schmidt from the Greenwich Library. Ms. Rose will moderate the discussion which will touch upon the research and inspiration behind their contributions to the book.
