The Phoenix Book Club, Phoenixville Public Library’s book discussion group for adults of all ages, will meet virtually on Monday, April 12, at 7:00 PM. The group will discuss “The Woman’s Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote” by Elaine Weiss. American women are so close to winning the right to vote — all they need is one more state. Nashville becomes a bitter battleground for both sides — the suffragists led by Carrie Catt, Sue White and Alice Paul, and the Antis, the women who don’t want women to have the right to vote. It’s really a battle over the role of women in society. A physical copy of the book may be reserved at https://catalog.ccls.org. An eBook copy may be reserved at https://chester.overdrive.com. This event is free and open to the public and will be held online/by phone via Zoom.
