AUTHOR PENNY COLMAN TO SPEAK AT EHS ANNUAL MEETING

The Englewood Historical Society will hold its Annual Meeting on Wednesday, March 12, at 7:15 PM in the Mackay Room of the Englewood Public Library.  In honor of Women’s History Month, a highlight will be guest speaker Penny Colman, who will be giving a talk about women who have been commemorated with landmarks and statuary. The EHS will hold a short business meeting before Colman’s talk.

 

Colman, an inspiring speaker and award-winning author of many books and magazine articles, specializes in non-fiction stories about notable women in history.  For this event, her talk, “Remembering Women Who Made A Difference,” will be about the markers, monuments, and memorials to women she has photographed around the tri-state area, including  Eleanor Roosevelt, Rosie the Riveter, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Susan B Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton.  Colman says, “I always have my camera with me … you never know when you’ll find a little-known memorial.  In more than twenty years of road trips in search of women’s history landmarks, I have photographed stunning statues, moving memorials, gorgeous gardens, important buildings, revelatory plaques, unexpected street signs, and fascinating displays to historic women.”

 

Women’s History Month is a celebration of women’s contributions to history, culture and society, taking place in March in the United States, The United Kingdom, and Australia.  It grew out of a small-town school event in California and is now part of the calendar in those countries.

 

The Englewood Historical Society is always looking for history lovers who would like to take an active part in promoting our local history, and welcomes them to our meetings and programs.  This meeting is open to all at no charge.

Mindful of the Past – Dedicated to the Future

The Englewood Historical Society is happy to welcome new members, and we welcome particularly members who would like to work on existing or new projects. In the past, for example, the EHS has sponsored bus tours and publications. We can always use ideas for programs, help with publicity, expertise with mailing lists, liaisons with other historical organizations, etc.
