Join the LWVN Book Group
December 1, 3-4:30 pm, Waban Library Center
The League of Women Voters of Newton invites you to join us on Sunday, December 1, 2019, from 3:00-4:30pm, at the Waban Library Center (1608 Beacon Street, Newton), for an intimate gathering and book group discussion with Newton resident and author Barbara F. Berenson. In her book (166 pages, with pictures), Massachusetts in the Woman Suffrage Movement, Barbara tells the riveting story of woman suffrage with a focus on those women in Massachusetts who shaped both the national and state movements.
Whether you’ve finished the book or not, join us for a lively discussion of the impact Massachusetts had on the women’s suffrage movement. Several copies of Barbara’s book are available through the Minuteman Library Network. The book can be purchased at Amazon, and there is at least one copy available for purchase at Newtonville Books. Copies of the book will also be made available by LWVN (contact us at email@example.com if you need a copy).
Following the book group discussion, all are welcome to attend the Waban Area’s Council annual tree lighting ceremony in Waban Square, right outside the Waban Library Center.
RSVPs to firstname.lastname@example.org are appreciated!
