Valentine’s Day or February 14th in 2018 is the bicentennial of the date Frederick Douglass chose as his birthday, and it’s a day before Susan B. Anthony’s 198th birthday on the 15th.
Elaine Weiss will be the keynote speaker on February 14th for the 2018 Susan B. Anthony birthday luncheon at the Susan B. Anthony House in Rochester, NY. Weiss, a journalist and author of The Woman’s Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote, will highlight the dramatic climax of the woman’s suffrage movement. The book will be published by Viking in March 2018. Weiss has presented at the Library of Congress, National Archives, Smithsonian Museum of American History, Hull House, the Chautauqua Institution, and many libraries, historical societies, and universities.
