TOM MACH'S TALKS IN LEAVENWORTH

These events have been cancelled because of snow conditions.

Author Tom Mach sends along this invitation:

I've been invited to speak about how the suffragist movement comes alive in Angels at Sunset at the Carroll Mansion Museum) at 1128 5th Ave in Leavenworth, KS. at 10 AM on Saturday, March 2. Admission is free.

I will also be doing a book signing at the Book Barn at 410 Delaware St in Leavenworth on March 2 at 11:30-1:30 pm.

HISTORICAL NOTE: Daniel R. Anthony, a pistol-packing newspaper editor, shot it out in the street on at least three occasions, once wounded so badly that his sister dropped her speaking tour and came to Leavenworth to nurse him back to health. While Susan B. Anthony was in Leavenworth she ran his paper and gave a boost to Kansas suffragettes. It's easy to feel Susan B. Anthony's presence, both in the Carroll Mansion Museum, and in The Book Barn, once an undertaking parlor.
