Reading & Siging Event
Mary Walton, author of A Woman’s Crusade: Alice Paul and the Battle for the Ballot
Alice Paul was born to a Quaker family in New Jersey. As a young woman, she was sent to England on an academic scholarship, and there she became a passionate believer in women’s rights to suffrage. Upon her return to the United States, she took on the White House in her campaign for the women’s vote. Alice Paul eventually succeeded in forcing President Woodrow Wilson and the U.S. Congress to pass the Nineteenth Amendment, granting women the right to vote.
Mary Walton is a graduate Harvard University and has written four books. She was a reporter for the Philadelphia Inquirer and a staff writer for the Sunday Inquirer magazine. She has also written for the New York Times, Washingtonian, the Washington Monthly and the American Journalism Review.
25th March 2011 (11:00 AM to 1:00 PM)
Judith Reed, author of Deadly Shamrocks
Vivian Clancy is the beautiful daughter of Irish immigrant parents, born and raised in Hell’s Kitchen — a bastion of poor and working-class Irish Americans in Manhattan, New York City over the last three decades of the 20th century (it is now known as Clinton and Midtown West ). Vivian discovers at an early age that even those you consider as your own kind will take advantage of you and hurt you if given enough cause.
J.B. Reed was born in Charleston, West Virginia, the youngest of three children. She tried her hand at making children’s stories earlier in her writing career, but she had to focus on raising her children so her writing had to take a back seat. These days she is able to spend much more time writing, and has been able to complete and publish her very first novel in September 2010.
