Author of “Born Criminal: Matilda Joslyn Gage, Radical Suffragist”
Matilda Joslyn Gage was a leader in the early women’s movement working closely with Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Today she is mostly forgotten, after being largely written out of history. Ms. Carpenter’s book writes her back in. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing by the author. The program is cosponsored by the Columbia Public Library.
