Nancy Rubin Stuart, prize-winning biographer of notable American women and Executive director of the Cape Cod Writers Center, traces the traditional view of women's inferior status through art, literature and social customs, and illuminates why shattering that concept is so difficult today. Stuart is the author of the highly acclaimed The Muse of the Revolution: The Secret Pen of Mercy Otis Warren and the Founding of a Nation, and the recent Defiant Brides: The Untold Story of Two Revolutionary Era Women and the Radical Men They Married, a selection of the History Book Club, Military Book Club, and Book-of-the-Month Club 2.

Explore new works on colonial women, get ground-breaking news on historical archeology in Plymouth, and learn about new perspectives on King Philip's War during our October evening lecture series. Lectures are held on Wednesday evening unless noted otherwise. Light refreshments at 6:30pm; lectures begin at 7pm.

Seating is limited and available on a first come, first seated basis. For more information, call 508-746-1620 or contact donna.curtin@pilgrimhall.org.
