10 Things I’ll Bet You Didn’t Know About Women’s Suffrage!

Laura Kumin, author of All Stirred Up: Suffrage Cookbooks, Food, and the Battle for Women’s Right to Vote, will discuss how women won the right to vote and what role food played in that movement. You will find out how she stumbled upon the little-known suffrage cookbooks and learn about how Clara Barton, Jack London, and other celebrities of the day supported the suffrage movement. 

A book sale and signing will follow the presentation.
