Virtual Book Club: March Meeting

Wednesday, March 9 - 7:00 PM

Join us on Wednesday, March 9, from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m., for an evening of lively discussion hosted by James Monroe’s Highland. This event is FREE and open to the public.

During the March meeting of our book club, Highland’s Mellon Post-Doctoral Research Fellow Maria DiBenigno will lead the group in discussion of Revolutionary Backlash: Women and Politics in the Early American Republic by Rosemarie Zagarri.

“An engaging book that successfully marries political practice and political theory with gender ideology. It is also a persuasive book. . . . What makes [Zagarri’s] study compelling is the pervasive presence of women; we hear their voices as they communicate privately in letters and as they argue publicly for rights. Visual evidences let us see them at political gatherings.”
