Book Discussion

Picture1.png

Men and women with brown faces and strong backs who risk everything to cross the Mexican border and invade the American Dream are the Okies of the 1990s. Two of them, Candido and America Rincon, have come to Southern California and are living in a makeshift camp deep in a ravine, fighting off starvation.

At the top of Topanga Canyon, Los Angeles liberals Delaney and Kyra Mossbacher lead an ordered sushi-and-recycling existence in a newly gated hilltop community: he a sensitive nature writer, she an obsessive realtor.

And from the moment a freak accident brings Candido and Delaney into intimate contact, the two couples and their opposing worlds gradually intersect in what becomes a tragicomedy of error and misunderstanding.

Join us in discussing this book, and help us choose our next books!

Sullivan County Suffragists

Minnie Feldman Memorial Lecture by John Conway

suffragettes1.gif

On August 18, 1920, Tennessee narrowly ratified the Nineteenth Amendment, making it the law throughout the United States, but the right to vote was not obtained without a major grassroots effort by thousands of women in small towns all across America. Sullivan County was no different, and women such as Elizabeth Worth Muller of Monticello and Mrs. C.W Montgomery of Wurtsboro led the way. In October of 1917, when 50,000 women paraded in New York City in support of suffrage, more than 6,500 Sullivan County women signed on. Sullivan County Historian John Conway takes a look back at the struggle for the vote in his program, The Suffragists.

John Conway has been the official Sullivan County Historian since 1993 and had taught a class on Sullivan County History at SUNY-Sullivan since 1998.  He is a popular lecturer and presenter and has written several books, dozens of magazine articles and more than one thousand newspaper columns over the years.

 

This program is free and open to the public.
