SUFFRAGE STORYTELLING

Readers don’t know much about the women’s suffrage movement. That’s why they love storytelling, especially a personal story to fill in the blanks.

FROM MARGUERITE KEARNS:

I decided to tell about my own life while writing about my grandparents’ experiences.

And when it’s finished, I hope what I’m writing about will be of interest to:

* citizens who have shown an interest in women, voting rights, and a wide range of issues impacting women since the 2016 presidential election;

* students, voters, activists, feminists, historians, Quakers, genealogists, and fans of storytelling, memoir, and family memoir;

* those curious about how previous generations of men were allies of the women’s movement;

• teachers who will find the book useful in history instruction on the high school and college level, as well as classes in literature, social studies, personal story, and related categories; and those interested in the Hudson Valley, the town of Woodstock; and the 1969 Woodstock Festival.
