The East End, Long Island, and 100 Years of Women’s Suffrage in New York State

The Tom Twomey Series of the East Hampton Library

Featuring

Antonia Petrash and Arlene Hinkemeyer

Moderated by Judith Hope

Hosted by Brooke Kroeger

To celebrate the November 2017 one hundredth anniversary of the granting of the vote to the women of New York State, author Antonia Petrash will discuss  the suffrage movement on Long Island and Arlene Hinkemeyer will focus on the suffragists of the East End, including Mrs. Thomas L. (May Groot) Manson of Main Street, East Hampton, for whom a memorial plaque is being dedicated in June in front of her one-time home on Main Street.  Check out our suffrage exhibition in the Tom Twomey Gallery and the multimedia work of the Library’s young adult team as they bring the local women’s suffrage story of a century ago to life.

 

This event is co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters of the  Hamptons, the Town of East Hampton, and Hugh King, East Hampton Town Crier and Village Historian. 

 

The Suffragents won the  Gold Medal in US History in the 2018 Independent Publisher Book Awards competition.
