Our First Event!

Women's History Month

We plan to celebrate March 6th with a coffee social and program for local educators. Authors Claire Rudolf Murphy and Kelly Milner Halls will share about several interesting and important women in history. We'll feature the League of Women Voters, and hear the story of May Awkwright Hutton, a pioneer woman who fought for women's rights in the Inland Northwest and spoke out against the abuse of power by multi-national corporations and crooked politicians. And that was just in her spare time! She also cooked on a steamboat and was part-owner in a silver mine.

Check back here. We'll have more information about our gathering, as well as resources for use in the classroom during Women's History Month.

We invite young people, authors, educators, librarians and parents to join us in celebrating the power of story in our lives. Together we will explore cultures near and far and listen for voices seldom heard or long forgotten. We will discover the wisdom of history that connects with young people today, and seek stories that help us grow in understanding ourselves and of our world.
