With The Suffragents, I’ve been up and down the roads from Albany to New York City to Long Island to Washington DC, and to Little Rock, Salt Lake City, and Chicago (and soon Tennessee), with the team behind, the April 2019 special suffrage centennial issue of American Journalism, and the March 2020 Front Pages, Front Lines: Media in the Fight for Women’s Suffrage. Here, newest first, are my Reports from the Road (often with video) 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.
