UGA Associate Professor of History Kathleen Ann Clark will discuss her work on the second volume of Georgia Women, which she co-edited with Ann Short Chirhart. The essays portray a wide array of Georgia women who played important roles in the state's history, from little-known Progressive Era activists to famous present-day figures. Collectively, the stories in this volume deepen our understanding of the multifaceted history of not only Georgia women but also the state itself. Bring your own lunch. Lemonade and cookies will be provided. Books will be available for purchase in the Library Store before and after the event. In Multipurpose Room A.
