Virtual Talk: Wild Women of Maryland Talk with Anne Arundel County Public Library 

Thursday, March 18, 2021

Daring women of Maryland made their mark on history as spies, would-be queens, and fiery suffragettes. Sarah Wilson escaped indentured servitude in Frederick by impersonating the queen's sister. Baltimorean Virginia Hall spied against the Nazis, while having just one leg. From famous figures like Harriet Tubman to unsung heroines like "Lady Law" Violet Hill Whyte, author Lauren R. Silberman introduces Maryland's most tenacious and adventurous women in this virtual program presented through Zoom webinar.

Presented in partnership with Anne Arundel County Public Libraries.

Registration Opens March 4th
