Rosie the Riveter
August is a busy speaking month with my first event, 8/1, at the Hudson River Museum, Yonkers, NY, where I gave my multimedia presentation based on my book Rosie the Riveter: Women Working on the Home Front in World War II. Next week, 8/15, I’m presenting, “Celebrating Women, with a special nod to Frances Perkins, the ‘Mother of Social Security,'” at the Social Security agency in Jamaica, Queens; the following week, 8/19, I’m giving a lecture, “Daunting Conditions, Scandalous Entanglements,” at the Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum, Adams, MA; finally, I go to the Gerritt Smith Estate National Historic Landmark and National Abolition Hall of Fame and Museum, 8/25, to discuss Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony: A Friendship That Changed the World. On 8/28 Sophie’s Daddy & I go to the airport to pick up Sophie & her mother when they return from their annual summer stay with their family in Switzerland!
