Book Signing: Galia Gichon – The Accidental Suffragist

June 5 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

We’re excited to host author Galia Gichon as she talks about her new book, The Accidental Suffragist. It’s 1912, and protagonist Helen Fox is a factory worker living in New York’s tenements. When tragedy strikes in the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, Helen is seduced by the Suffragist cause and is soon immersed, working alongside famous activists. The narrative spans World War One and concludes with the triumph of 1919. In a time when the obstacles for women, from any background, were insurmountable, Helen discovers her voice as an independent woman and dreams of equality in a male-dominated society.
