3:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Join us for a screening of a recent PBS interview with journalist and non-fiction author Elaine Weiss, followed by a discussion of her book The Woman's Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote. 100 years ago, on August 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment was finally ratified, giving women the vote. Join FOSL and the Front Royal Women's Resource Center as we journey back with Weiss to explore the final campaign of their crusade. Please note, if it is not possible to have an in-person event due to social distancing requirements, this event will take place online as a Zoom discussion. Contact the Reference Department for more information and assistance in joining the zoom discussion at 540.635.3153 ext. 105.
