Mary Ball Washington and the Challenges of Writing Women's History
Saturday, March 25 | 11am
Mary Ball Washington, the Mother of our Founding Father, has received considerable historical attention, but little of it accurate and much of it gratuitously hostile.
In this talk, Martha Saxton, the C.V. Starr Center for the American Experience's 2017 Patrick Henry Fellow, will share new research about Mrs. Washington's life and discuss various difficulties inherent in writing about women in this period of history.
Refreshments will be served.
In addition to featured events, every month KCPL also offers book clubs, writing groups, and Friday films.
