Please tell your local librarian about my book, Women in American History: A Social, Political, and Cultural Encyclopedia and Document Collection

We know our new 4-volume encyclopedia Women in American History: A Social, Political, and Cultural Encyclopedia and Document Collection is not the kind of thing an average person purchases based on size and cost (though I remember a pre-internet time when door-to-door salesmen still hawked the Encyclopedia Britannica and my mom bought a copy to help me do well in school and get to college).

In this modern world, if you want to help Peg and I (and all the students who can benefit from learning about all these wonderful women who helped shape American culture) consider passing a copy of the attached flyer out to your local public or university librarians (in print and/or via email) and ask if they will order a set for their branch.

Thanks!

My thoughts on NASA’s Day of Remembrance 2016

Christa McAuliffe (first civilian teacher in space), Judy Resnik (first Jewish person and 2nd American female in space), Kalpana Chawla (first Indian woman in space) and Laurel Clark.  I wrote about these female astronauts in my Encyclopedia of Women in Aviation and Space back in 1998 – by then Challenger had happened – but Columbia had not. Worth taking a moment to remember their dedication…

Women in American History: A Social, Political, and Cultural Encyclopedia and Document Collection [Book]

Women in History Cover ImageI’m excited to announce that the 4-volume encyclopedia I’ve been working on with my friend and colleague Peg Lamphier for the last two years — Women in American History: A Social, Political, and Cultural Encyclopedia and Document Collection has now appeared in the ABC-CLIO Spring Catalog.

We’d like to thank the many colleagues too numerous to mention who contributed to the research and writing!

Ask your local public or university library to order a set!
