Elaine Weiss tells the gripping story of the climax of the fight to ratify the 19th Amendment, replete with heroism, skullduggery, and suspense, coordination and conflict with other reform movements, and leadership by individuals famous and less than famous. The book has been optioned by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television, to become a movie or limited series. 7:00pm lecture (registration and refreshments starting at 6:30pm), followed by a book signing.
