Please join undergraduate English majors and student researchers Harmony Renn & Saraya Abner as they discuss some of their favorite items in the exhibit "Women Pioneers: Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of Women's Suffrage."

As students of mine in ENG 4940 Research Apprenticeship, and working closely with Miriam Intrator, who has curated this exhibit, they conducted most of the in-depth research that made this exhibit possible.

The Talk & Tour will begin in the 4th floor lobby area of Alden Library on Monday, February 3rd at 4pm.

All are welcome. Please help us spread the word!
