The Women’s Museum (Dallas, Texas) is celebrating Women’s History Month (March!) with a “Conversations With . . .” series.
Featured guest on Thursday, March 10 (11:00 a.m.) is our own Sylvia Dickey Smith, author of A War of Her Own.
After a boxed lunch, you will have the opportunity to discuss the book’s tale of Bea Meade, a Texas version of “Rosie the Riveter.” Bring a friend or a coworker and enjoy a lunch full of stories and conversations with the author.
This is a very cool museum! A Smithsonian affiliate, The Women’s Museum: An Institute for the Future
makes visible the unique, textured, and diverse stories of American women. Using the latest technology and interactive media, the Museum’s exhibits and programs expand our understanding of women’s participation in shaping our nation’s history. . . . Thousands of stories recount public and private triumphs and the struggles of those who would be denied their freedoms in all its forms: political, social, and spiritual.
The museum reflects what Eleanor Roosevelt once said: “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
Books are also a testament to the power of authors and readers to share a dream. Good works of historical fiction, like A War of Her Own, are written not just to preserve a story from the past, but to influence the future as well.
