I’m on my way to the Quad Cities next week to do a presentation at the Moline Public Library’s Southwest Branch) co-sponsored by two local AAUW branches: Rock Island/Moline (IL) & Davenport (IA). This is a special treat for me because A Jury of Her Peers was written by Susan Glaspell, who was born & raised in Davenport.
It’s also emotional for me because Sally Heckel (pictured above) was the special guest at the very first Chicago WITASWAN program, & in many ways the whole WITASWAN intiative actually began when members of AAUW-Illinois saw her wonderful film for the first time at our 2003 Spring Convention.
So this particular trip will close a loop for me, & bring many things full circle. Should YOU be anywhere near Moline on 3/1, please join us. This is a public program & everyone is welcome! Here is a wonderful article by Laura Fraembs posted Weds (2/24/08) on QCOnline.
