Virtual Book Club with Mayor Donchess
Tuesday, October 20, 2020
“The Woman’s Hour,” by Elaine Weiss, chronicles the Women’s Suffrage Movement and the battle for ratification of the 19th Amendment in Tennessee, the 36th state to ratify and the state that put the Amendment over the top. The suffrage movement, which celebrates its 100th anniversary this year, resulted in women nationwide getting the right to vote. On Oct. 20, 2020 at 7 p.m., Nashua Mayor Jim Donchess is hosting a virtual book club focused on Weiss’ novel, to commemorate this historic milestone.
Three local panelists, along with Mayor Donchess, will kick off the event, with each offering a perspective on the book and then opening it up to questions from registered participants. Panelists include Dr. Nicole Loring, a political science professor at Rivier University and two women’s studies specialists from the Nashua School District - Sarah Paling and Kate Soucy, both of Nashua High School South.
