Journalist and former New York Times editor Angela P. Dodson will give a talk on her new book about women’s suffrage March 6 at the Lawrence Library starting at 7 p.m.

Remember the Ladies: Celebrating Those Who Fought for Freedom at the Ballot Box covers the long struggle that led to the 1920 ratification of the 19th Amendment granting United States women suffrage. This year leads up to the centennial in 2020.

Dodson’s narrative spans the country’s history from before Abigail Adams urged her husband, John Adam, to “Remember the ladies” as the Founding Fathers declared independence. The book aims to provide historical context for today’s conversations about women’s issues and their role in the electoral process.

The Lawrence Library is located at 2751 Brunswick Pike in Lawrence. For more information, visit
