Dear Diary: Women’s Lives in Their Own Words

Tuesday, March 28, 2017, 6:00 pm
Special Collections, Bailey/Howe Library

To celebrate Women’s History Month, Special Collections librarians and Preservation Burlington members will showcase the words of Vermont women who wrote about their experiences attending, working, and teaching at colleges and universities. Drawing from the UVM Libraries manuscripts collection, they will read selections from diaries and letters written by Ellen Hamilton Woodruff, one of UVM’s first female students, UVM Dean of Students Mary Jean Simpson, Genieve Lamson, a Randolph, Vermont woman who attended the University of Chicago, and Katherine Fletcher, who graduated from the Johnson State Normal School. Audience participation is strongly encouraged. Please bring your own journal to read.

The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. For more information, email uvmsc@uvm.edu or call 656-2138.
