Large Meeting Rm

In honor of the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage, Lexington author Lori Harrison-Kahan will discuss her new book, The Superwoman and Other Writings, an edited collection of journalism and fiction by Miriam Michelson. One of the first female journalists in San Francisco in the 1890s, Michelson went on to become a suffrage activist and a bestselling author of feminist fiction like "The Superwoman," a novella that inspired the "Wonder Woman" comics. Harrison-Kahan's talk will address Michelson's upbringing in Virginia City, Nevada, during the Gold Rush; her influence on Progressive Era politics; and her relevance to contemporary movements like #MeToo.
