ONLINE Author Talk: Anne Gass: Voting Down the Rose
Author event co-sponsored by League of Women Voters, Brunswick, and Curtis Memorial Library.
This event is in celebration of the 100th year of women winning the vote! In this session, join us as Anne B. Gass talks about her book, Voting Down the Rose: Florence Brooks Whitehouse and Maine’s Fight for Woman Suffrage.
Voting Down the Rose is a lively account of Maine native Florence Brooks Whitehouse’s efforts to win women voting rights in the decisive final years of the campaign, 1914-1920. Considered radical for picketing the White House, Florence helped win women suffrage against a backdrop of conservative views of women’s roles, political intrigues, WWI, and the 1918 influenza epidemic.
Anne is the great-granddaughter Florence Brooks Whitehouse. You can purchase the book or borrow it from your local library in advance of the discussion.
This event will be available via Zoom and will also stream on Facebook Live, on the Curtis Library Facebook page.
