The Tom Twomey Series of the East Hampton Library
October 19, 2017, at 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm
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.
