MARCH LECTURE POSTPONED - Thursday, March 26, 2020 - Voting Down the Rose: Florence Brooks Whitehouse and Maine's Fight for Woman Suffrage

7:30pm - Berwick Academy Arts Center

Voting Down the Rose  ** THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE ** Florence Brooks Whitehouse was a novelist, painter, vocalist, and mother of three sons when she first joined the suffrage movement in 1914. Author Anne B. Gass, Whitehouse's great-granddaughter, explores Florence’s life up to 1914 and her leadership in moving suffrage forward in Maine, joining forces with national leader Alice Paul in a desperate, last-ditch effort to ensure that the Maine legislature ratified the 19th Amendment that would give women voting rights. Slides of historic photos accompany this lively talk.
