Celebrating Women: A Dynamic Presentation On Women’s History
Award-winning author Penny Colman is coming to the Verona Public Library to give her acclaimed talk “Celebrating Women!: on Tuesday, May 6, at 7:30 p.m. This dynamic program of unique photographs and a lively commentary is based on Ms. Colman’s many road trips in search of historic women’s landmarks. Over the years she has traveled from Maine to California, Michigan to Texas photographing a diversity of landmarks – from plaques to parks, memorials to museums, buildings to benches, signs to statues, graves to gardens – that celebrate women’s indispensable and inspiring contributions to every aspect of American life.
Penny Colman is the author of award-winning biographies and social histories. Her intriguing topics range from Rosie the Riveter: Women Working on the Home Front in World War II to Thanksgiving: The True Story. A popular speaker, Penny has appeared on television, radio, including National Public Radio, and on Book TV, C-Span2. She has been honored by the New Jersey State Legislature for her books and public appearances that have contributed to the advancement of women.
