The Melrose Public Library presents History At Play™’s critically acclaimed one-woman performance celebrating the centennial of Women’s Suffrage in the United States, I Now Pronounce You Lucy Stone.

In this 60 minute, suitable for all ages presentation, History At Play™ Founder and Artistic Director Judith Kalaora is Lucy Stone: The first woman from Massachusetts to earn a college degree, a fierce abolitionist, and women’s rights activist. Challenging discrimination is not easy, but Lucy Stone is never one to take the easy road. Even Susan B. Anthony credited Lucy Stone for her involvement in the tumultuous women’s rights movement. A Q&A will follow the session!

Seating is limited; starting Saturday, February 29, 2020 at 10:00 AM, sign up online or with a library staff member, 781-665-2313.

This program is supported in part by The Friends of the Melrose Public Library and a grant from the Melrose Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
