February 27, 2020—Join us for a special event featuring Elaine Weiss, author of The Woman’s Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote, at the Main Stage of the Performing Arts Center at Western Washington University at 6:30 pm.

A reception with the author will follow her presentation. The Woman’s Hour not only recounts how women won the vote, but also shows how the core themes of American history—race, class, money, gender, state’s rights, power, and democracy all came into play in Nashville, Tennessee, during the summer of 1920. Published in 2018, the book will be developed into a television production by Steven Spielberg with Hillary Rodham Clinton as Executive Producer. Author Elaine Weiss brings this gripping story and the many characters to life.
