Hopewell Public Library’s Wednesday Night Out Lecture Series features “The Women Who Won the Vote”

Hopewell author Nancy B. Kennedy brings the woman suffrage fight to life with historic and current-day photos in her talk, “Choosing to Conquer: The Women Who Won the Vote.” Drawing from her book, “Women Win the Vote! 19 for the 19th Amendment,” she blends stories of little-known local suffragists with those of the women who led the national fight.

In this 101st year of the woman’s right to vote, come celebrate the three generations of women (and men!) who waged this fierce civil rights battle. Wednesday, November 17, at 7pm, Hopewell Theater, 5 S. Greenwood Ave., Hopewell NJ 08525. The event is free and open to the public; no reservation required. For more information, call the Hopewell Public Library at 609-466-1625 or email hpl@redlibrary.org
