Takeover! Local Suffragists & The 1914 Grand Rapids Press

Add to Calendar 02/04/2020 06:30 PM 02/04/2020 08:00 PM America/New_York Takeover! Local Suffragists & The 1914 Grand Rapids Press

When setting goals for 1914, the National Equal Suffrage Association called for rallies, participation in parades, and the take over of local newspapers for a day across the country to argue for the cause. The Grand Rapids Equal Suffrage Association met this challenge by editing and producing the edition of May 2, 1914 issue of the Grand Rapids Press, and holding a rally in Veterans Park on that afternoon. Ruth Van Stee will talk about the edition itself, the local women involved, and how these local events fit intothe national suffrage movement. One of the original newspapers of the day will be on display that evening for viewing.

Join other readers to share your thoughts on a variety of books. This month's selection is The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper by Phaedra Patrick.  

Sixty-nine-year-old widower Arthur Pepper lives a simple life. He is predictable and cautious as he carries out daily routines. However, on the one-year anniversary of Miriam's death, something changes. Sorting through Miriam's possessions, Arthur finds an exquisite gold charm bracelet he's never seen before. What follows is a surprising and unforgettable odyssey that takes Arthur from London to Paris and as far as India in an epic quest to find out the truth about his wife's secret life before they met—a journey that leads him to find hope, healing and self-discovery in the most unexpected places.
