History of Women Clubs
February 2nd - April 1, 2018 

What started off as social gatherings and book clubs grew during the Progressive Era into a fully grown social movement. Women's clubs, formed by middle-class white women and African Americans, focused on social reform for issues concerning the country in the late 19th and early 20th centuries such as child labour, prison reform, suffrage, education, public health, and temperance.

Second Sunday Author Series with Niti Sampat-Patel

Moon Goddess is an epic novel that spans India, USA and Lebanon. Echoing the structure of T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land it chronicles the lives of several generations of women and examines the nature of memory and violence as characters attempt to reconstruct the past. This complex and spell binding saga with intertwining stories of love, loss and subterfuge with both disruptive and healing characteristics; uses myth, quotations, prophecy, fact, and fiction to tell a compelling tale of fate and chance, personal choice and public intrigue. Moon Goddess will enrich the quality of the cultural lives of multiple international communities through Ms. Sampat Patel's knowledge, imagination and writing process where she draws upon stories from diverse and heterogeneous sources and origins from the past and the present to reflect on each other.
