So,what did I do?
Sunday, March 1, I was in Florida talking about my book "The Vote: Women's Fierce Fight" at The Villages, where someone forgot to arrange for the AV equipment to show my carefully curated slides. So, what did I do? I talked and "sketched" images on the blank
screen and pantomimed. First picture: Linda captured the moment I "showed" an image of a seated Elizabeth Cady Stanton with a young son on either side of her. Yesterday, Thursday, I was the keynote speaker for Women's History Month at Bergen Community College, Paramus, NJ. The second picture was taken by the pr person at the college.
On Saturday in Jacksonville, my brother Kip, sister-in-law Lisa, Linda and I discovered the grave of Mary A. Nolan, a suffragist I wrote about in "The Vote." On Monday, Linda and I drove to Daytona Beach to make a long-awaited pilgrimage to the grave of Mary McLeod Bethune, who I wrote about in "Adventurous Women." (I'm in the process of writing blog posts about these visits to historic women's landmarks. There are pics on my Instagram account.)
