Many of the women in attendance work diligently in Long Beach to preserve and expand our library services.
One of the featured writers is Pultizer Prize Winner Isabel Wilkerson who talked about writing her amazing book on the migration of 6 million Americans from the south to escape Jim Crow laws. The book: The Warmth of Other Suns is an epic non fiction account of how lives were changed forever when African Americans left the south beginning in WWI.
Congrats to the women who put this event on today! Thanks for doing this in Long Beach for 30 years.
