Book Discussion: These Truths

EPL History Book Group discusses These Truths, chapters 11-16 by Jill Lepore. Evanston Public Library, Main Library, 1703 Orrington, 3rd floor. In the second half of These Truths, Jill Lepore begins with the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920, which gave women the right to vote. In keeping with an overall feminist reframing of American history, Lepore covers the accomplishments of major women figures over the last 100 years, from Eleanor Roosevelt to Hillary Rodham, all part of a new look at our most recent history, up to and including the Trump ascendancy of 2016.
