Book Group Meeting #3: "Massachusetts in the Woman Suffrage Movement" by Barbara Berenson
Tuesday, January 14, 6:00 PM, at the Depot
The Lexington Historical Society Book Group meets five times each year, and new members are always welcome!
This month's book will help you get up to speed on the history behind the 2020 centennial of the 19th amendment granting women the right to vote! "Massachusetts in the Woman Suffrage Movement" removes the story of the suffrage from the singular mythology of Seneca Falls, deepening the movement to Worcester, greater New England, and the far reaches of the West. Her untold histories touch upon the complicated nature of the movement made even messier by aspects of politics, class, and race.
Includes catered dinner from Neillio's.
Stay tuned for our next book: "Leadership in Turbulent Times" by Doris Kearns Goodwin on March 24!
