People are interested in the history of woman’s suffrage. Author Teri P. Gary is finding this out as she travels upstate New York to speak to groups about her research and the story of the movement in Washington, Warren and Saratoga Counties. She’s been at about 40 appearances during the past year and is about to take a break so she has time for writing. Her book Strength Without Compromise: Womanly Influence and Political identity in Turn-of-the-Twentieth Century Rural Upstate New York (2009) isn’t a candidate for the best-seller list. But it’s hot among certain audiences of people hungry to know more about this part of history. Teri has three more appearances scheduled:
Monday, Nov. 1 – at 7pm – Book talk and signing at the United Church in Greenwich, NY for the Washington County HIstorical Society (and is open to the public)
Sunday, Nov. 7 – (11am – 4pm – signing books all day at The Chronicle Book Fair in Glens Falls, NY at the Queensbury Hotel (this is the largest book fair in the Adirondacks!)
Saturday, Mar. 19, 2100 – 2pm – Book talk and signing at Hubbard Hall (an 1878 historic opera house) in Cambridge, NY – in conjunction with singer/songwriter Bob Warren, who will present his musical composition, “Only the Message Mattered,” about the life and work of Susan B. Anthony in the Greenwich, New York area.
Inspired by the true stories of Lucy Allen, Chloe Sisson and the Political Equality Club of small town Easton, NY, Strength Without Compromise focuses on the quest for political equality as carried out by suffragists in the rural areas of northern upstate New York at the turn of the 20th century.
