Throughout the month, JCFPL will host author talks and discussions, monologues, and performances that reflect the contributions women have made and continue to make nationwide and globally.

One highlight of the month will be “History Smashers: A Fresh Look at American History, from the Mayflower to the Women’s Suffrage.”

On March 17, award-winning author Kate Messner will give a presentation on the research and writing of her illustrated History Smashers series for young readers, History Smashers: Women’s Right to Vote, which takes a closer look at the Women’s Suffrage Movement.
