“A world-wide pandemic has dramatically changed the way we view the past, present, and future,” according to author and activist Marguerite Kearns. “We’re still standing on the shoulders of those who have come before us. And we’re still passing a torch of inspiration to future generations. The content and approaches are often very different between now and then.” “By contrasting the old and new, we’re sharpening our critical skills and can evaluate if we’re discovering dynamic solutions or simply playing musical chairs,” Kearns adds.
 
A four-minute video, in addition to a book reading and commentary will be presented at a special zoom program of the Historical Society of Woodstock on Thursday, October 14, 2021, 4-5:30 p.m. EST.
 
 Marguerite Kearns’s new book from SUNY Press (State University of New York) was published the summer of 2021—An Unfinished Revolution: Edna Buckman Kearns and the Struggle for Women’s Rights.
