Actress and historian Marjorie Goldman brings Susan B. Anthony back to the library for an encore visit. Once you hear her tell the dramatic story behind the 19th Amendment and the fight for women’s suffrage, you will never take your right to vote for granted.

This is the same program that was offered through the library on August 8, 2020. The first part is a recording of her presentation, and then Ms. Anthony will answer YOUR questions. If you missed the August 8 program, this is for you!

Contact the library at (610) 825-1656 or smason@mclinc.org if you have any questions.
