Hi, there. I hope your New Year is off to a good start.

I’m on what I thought was a winter hiatus . . . but a lot is happening here, behind the scenes, as additional bookings come in, from coast to coast. 

Below is my schedule for March through April—in Jersey, Connecticut, Minnesota, and Pennsylvania. But please check in again; others are pending. 

You’ll find details on the three programs offered, at the end of this page (Women Breaking Loose) and on two of my website pages (Gettysburg: One Woman's War and Someone Must Wash the Dishes: An Anti-Suffrage Satire). 

Thanks for stopping by!

About Women Breaking Loose:

A century ago, Kate Chopin’s “A Pair of Silk Stockings” and Edna Ferber’s “Representing T. A. Buck” tackled two dilemmas that women still face daily: Who comes first—my family or me? Where do I belong—at home or at work?”

A talk-back follows the hour-long program.
