Vintage Tweets: Suffrage Era Postcards

February 19, 2020, 7:00 pm -

Geneva History Museum
543 South Main Street
Geneva, NY 14456

In this special program in honor of the 100th anniversary of the Women's Suffrage Amendment and the 200th anniversary of the birth of Susan B. Anthony, the Geneva Historical Society will host author Carol Crossed on Wednesday, February 19 at 7 p.m. to discuss her book Vintage Tweets: Suffrage Era Postcards.

The book chronicles the fight for the vote through thought-provoking, often amusing, and sometimes shocking images and short, pithy messages on complex domestic issues—marriage, childbirth, violence—and public and political topics like abolition, temperance and dress reform. Crossed, who is the founder and president of the Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum in Adams, Massachusetts, used color  photos of suffrage postcards from her private collection in the 218-page hard cover book.

This program is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. For more information about the program, call the Geneva Historical Society office at 315-789-5151.
