Women Out of The Kitchen: Historical Women of New England

Whose story becomes history? How is the question of “what happened” complicated by power and privilege? This Community Project Grant to Gorham Public Library, in collaboration with Berlin Public Library and White Mountains Community College’s Fortier Library, supports a four-part series about women of note in New England history. Through lecture, living history, and book discussion, the series explores the lives of women who operated outside the confines of the traditional gender roles of the times in which they lived. All events in the series take place on Wednesdays at 6:00 pm at the White Mountains Community College Fortier Library in Berlin and are free and open to the public.
