With The Suffragents, I’ve been up and down the roads from Long Island to Albany several times with a detour to Little Rock in October, oh, and one in August to Chicago, to meet with the great team that has assembled around the database suffrageandthemedia.org and the forthcoming April 2019 special suffrage centennial issue of American Journalism, and there’s even a post about it below, from this New Yorker in Utah, no less. Here, newest first,, are my “summer camp newsletters” about the places I’ve been and the people I’ve had the good fortune to meet along the way.

For reviews of the book , notices and articles about the Suffragents, and Brooke’s related articles in various publications, just click the links in this sentence.
