SECOND SATURDAYS AUTHOR SERIES
Saturday, October 10th, 2pm
Our Second Saturdays series returns with a visit from local authors Russell DeSimone & Frank Grzyb – coauthors of Remarkable Women of Rhode Island. Rhode Island proudly claims a long list of remarkable women throughout history, from pioneering education reformers and suffragettes to trailblazing athletes and authors. In the mid-1800s, Sarah Helen Whitman became a prominent female poet and nearly married Edgar Allan Poe. In 1922, Isabelle Ahearn O’Neil became the first woman to hold office in the Rhode Island legislature. In the 1940s, Wilma Briggs became the first woman in the state to play on a local high school boys’ baseball team and went on to join the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. Join authors Frank L. Grzyb and Russell J. DeSimone in this captivating and insightful account that spans five centuries of women who made history in the smallest state in the nation. They even include NK’s own Olympic heroine, Elizabeth Beisel!
