East Hampton Star, Sag Harbor Express, Suffragents and the Suffrage Rally Re-Enactment, August 31, 2017

[Updated September 8, 2017]

August 31, 2017

I guess we got the attire right because both the East Hampton Star and Sag Harbor Express  carried photos on their front pages of Alex and me marching in the suffrage rally re-enactment down Main Street in East Hampton on Thursday, August 24, 2017. Carissa Katz’s story about the event is here.

I’m pictured in the Star with Arlene Hinkemeyer of the League of Women Voters, who did all the heavy lifting to make the event such a success.

and on the front page of the Sag Harbor Express (curtainraiser by Christine Sampson is here)

The same day, David Rattray’s East Hampton column in the Star (August 31, 2017 page 3) featured a notice about the Suffragents launch event at the East Hampton Library. I wrote up a full-dress report of the author talk and party with plenty of party photos here. My own reflections on hosting the rally’s honored guest is here, under the headline, “When Direct Descendants (of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Harriot Stanton Blatch) Come to Call.
