"Upon hearing the name Hedy Lamarr, whom do you see? A smoldering, bejeweled temptress, perched on velour cushions, in the 1949 Hollywood classic Samson and Delilah?

Hedy Lamarr was not only a great starlet in Hollywood’s Golden Age; she was also devoted to helping the Allies beat the NAZI forces in WWII. Whether selling war bonds for $50,000 a kiss, or inventing a secret communication system, with the help of American composer George Antheil, Hedy Lamarr knows she is more than just a glamorous girl!

Tuesday Evening Book Discussion [ONLINE]

Join us for an online book discussion of Children of the Land by Marcelo Hernadez Castillo

This unforgettable memoir from a prize-winning poet about growing up undocumented in the United States recounts the sorrows and joys of a family torn apart by draconian policies and chronicles one young man’s attempt to build a future in a nation that denies his existence.

When Marcelo Hernandez Castillo was five years old and his family was preparing to cross the border between Mexico and the United States, he suffered temporary, stress-induced blindness. Castillo regained his vision, but quickly understood that he had to move into a threshold of invisibility before settling in California with his parents and siblings. Thus began a new life of hiding in plain sight and of paying extraordinarily careful attention at all times for fear of being truly seen. Before Castillo was one of the most celebrated poets of a generation, he was a boy who perfected his English in the hopes that he might never seem extraordinary.

With beauty, grace, and honesty, Castillo recounts his and his family’s encounters with a system that treats them as criminals for seeking safe, ordinary lives. He writes of the Sunday afternoon when he opened the door to an ICE officer who had one hand on his holster, of the hours he spent making a fake social security card so that he could work to support his family, of his father’s deportation and the decade that he spent waiting to return to his wife and children only to be denied reentry, and of his mother’s heartbreaking decision to leave her children and grandchildren so that she could be reunited with her estranged husband and retire from a life of hard labor.

Children of the Land distills the trauma of displacement, illuminates the human lives behind the headlines and serves as a stunning meditation on what it means to be a man and a citizen.

Yale Needs Women -- How The First Group Of Girls Rewrote The Rules Of An Ivy League [NA Reads]

**PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A VIRTUAL PROGRAM THAT WILL TAKE PLACE VIA ZOOM. Registrants will receive a link to access the Zoom Meeting via email.**  

Join Anne Gardiner Perkins for a presentation based on her acclaimed book, Yale Needs Women: How the First Group of Girls Rewrote the Rules of an Ivy League Giant. Enjoy a riveting account of how the first 575 undergraduate women admitted to previously all-male Yale University in 1969 found themselves doing battle with 268 years of entrenched male hegemony in an Ivy League setting. 

Anne will be joined by two subjects of her book -- Virginia Tyson and Betsy Hartmann. Both women arrived as first-year students at Yale in 1969, the start of coeducation, and will give us their first-hand account of what that experience was like. Virginia grew up in Houston but attended boarding school in Massachusetts' Pioneer Valley. Betsy came to Yale from a public high school in Princeton New Jersey, and is a long-time Massachusetts resident.

About The Book: The experience the first undergraduate women found when they stepped onto Yale's imposing campus was not the same one their male peers enjoyed. Isolated from one another, singled out as oddities and sexual objects, and barred from many of the privileges an elite education was supposed to offer, many of the first girls found themselves immersed in an overwhelmingly male culture they were unprepared to face. Yale Needs Women is the story of how these young women fought against the backward-leaning traditions of a centuries-old institution and created the opportunities that would carry them into the future. Anne Gardiner Perkins's unflinching account of a group of young women striving for change is an inspiring story of strength, resilience, and courage that continues to resonate today. To purchase a copy of the Yale Needs Women, click HERE.

About The Author: Anne Gardiner Perkins is an award-winning historian and expert in higher education. She graduated from Yale University, where she won the Porter Prize in history and was elected the first woman editor in chief of the Yale Daily News. Perkins is a Rhodes Scholar who received her PhD in higher education from the University of Massachusetts Boston and her master's in public administration from Harvard, where she won the Littauer Award for academic excellence and served as a teaching fellow in education policy. She has presented papers on the history of higher education at leading academic conferences and been a visiting scholar at the New England Resource Center for Higher Education. Perkins lives with her husband in Boston.

Images In The Women's Suffrage Movement [NA Reads]

**PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A VIRTUAL PROGRAM THAT WILL TAKE PLACE VIA ZOOM. Registrants will receive a link to access the Zoom Meeting via email.**  

For as long as women have battled for equitable political representation in America, those battles have been defined by images -- whether illustrations, engravings, photographs, or colorful chromolithograph posters. Some of these pictures have been flattering, many have been condescending, and others downright incendiary. They have drawn upon prevailing cultural ideas of women’s perceived roles and abilities and often have been circulated with pointedly political objectives. Take a look at the ways in which women's right activists and their opponents used images to define gender and power during the Women's Suffrage Movement.

Presented by Allison K. Lange, an assistant professor of history at the Wentworth Institute of Technology and author of Picturing Political Power: Images in the Women’s Suffrage Movement.  She has worked with the National Women’s History Museum and curated exhibitions for the Boston Public Library’s Leventhal Map Center, the Massachusetts Historical Society, and Harvard's Schlesinger Library. Lange has presented her work at conferences of the American Historical Association and Organization of American Historians. Her writing has appeared in The Atlantic and The Washington Post.

Free Thinker Book Discussion [NA Reads]

Join us for an online book discussion of Free Thinker: Sex, Suffrage, and the Extraordinary Life of Helen Hamilton Gardener by Kimberly A. Hamlin

***Copies are available at the reference desk, call to schedule a pick up time. ***

Exposed in Ohio newspapers for an affair with a married man, Alice Chenowyth refused to cower in shame. Instead she changed her name to Helen Hamilton Gardener, moved to New York, pretended to be married to her lover, and became a wildly popular lecturer and author, brazenly opposed to sexist piety and propriety.

The “Harriet Beecher Stowe of Fallen Women,” she supported raising the age of sexual consent for girls (from twelve or younger), decried double standards of sexual morality, and debunked scientists’ claims that women’s brains were inferior. With liberal doses of feminine charm, Gardner networked tirelessly to persuade Woodrow Wilson and other male politicians to support the Nineteenth Amendment. Her effort, according to suffrage leader Carrie Pitt, was “the most potent factor” in its passage.

As more women enter politics than ever before, Kimberly A. Hamlin recovers the wildly entertaining and illuminating life of a brilliant, effective woman—all but forgotten—who paved the way.

The Best of Allies: The Remarkable Friendship of William Lloyd Garrison and Harriet Tubman[NA Reads]
Join us for a lecture with Kate Clifford Larson, Ph.D.
 
*** REGISTRATION REQUIRED TO RECEIVE VIEWING DETAILS***

When William Lloyd Garrison met Harriet Tubman during the mid-1850s, the Underground Railroad conductor was a fugitive from the law. Fearless, physically strong, and unwavering in her faith, she won over Garrison and the Boston abolitionists when she told them of her missions to liberate family and friends. They won her over with their commitment to end slavery. Garrison called her “Moses, the Liberator,” and the nickname stuck. From that evening forward, they stood on equal ground; two passionate, like-minded people fighting for liberty, equality, and justice. He fought with the pen, she with right and might. Garrison and Tubman’s legacies live on in voting rights and registration campaigns, anti-racism and Black Lives Matter marches, the #MeToo movement, anti-poverty activism, equal pay, and the battle for Civil Rights and social justice.

Free Thinker Book Discussion [NA Reads]

Join us for an online book discussion of Free Thinker: Sex, Suffrage, and the Extraordinary Life of Helen Hamilton Gardener by Kimberly A. Hamlin

***Copies are available at the reference desk, call to schedule a pick up time. ***

Exposed in Ohio newspapers for an affair with a married man, Alice Chenowyth refused to cower in shame. Instead she changed her name to Helen Hamilton Gardener, moved to New York, pretended to be married to her lover, and became a wildly popular lecturer and author, brazenly opposed to sexist piety and propriety.

The “Harriet Beecher Stowe of Fallen Women,” she supported raising the age of sexual consent for girls (from twelve or younger), decried double standards of sexual morality, and debunked scientists’ claims that women’s brains were inferior. With liberal doses of feminine charm, Gardner networked tirelessly to persuade Woodrow Wilson and other male politicians to support the Nineteenth Amendment. Her effort, according to suffrage leader Carrie Pitt, was “the most potent factor” in its passage.

As more women enter politics than ever before, Kimberly A. Hamlin recovers the wildly entertaining and illuminating life of a brilliant, effective woman—all but forgotten—who paved the way.

Votes For Women -- A History Of The Suffrage Movement [NA Reads]

**PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A VIRTUAL PROGRAM THAT WILL TAKE PLACE VIA ZOOM. Registrants will receive a link to access the Zoom Meeting via email.**  

The campaign for women's right to vote was a long one, from the 1848 Women's Rights Convention in Seneca Falls, New York to ratification of the 19th amendment in 1920. Who were the key players in New Hampshire and the nation? What issues and obstacles did they face? How did suffragists benefit from World War I in the final push for passage of the women's suffrage amendment? Who was left out when women got the right to vote? Using historic photos and documents, Liz Tentarelli will guide us on the journey. Liz is president of the League of Women Voters New Hampshire, a non-partisan organization that is the direct descendant of the National American Woman Suffrage Association.

Register directly on Zoom HERE Presented in collaboration with the Tewksbury Public Library,  Memorial Hall Library in Andover, Stevens Memorial Library in North Andover, Flint Memorial Library in North Reading.
