Book Club

Katie Harris has a knack for picking a great book! A leader (and treasured unicorn) of the Gal’s Guide Book Club Katie will hand pick a book that fits into our research them for the month. Selections might be fiction, they might be non fiction.

We will meet on the last Thursday of every month at 8pm. Because of our wide reach we’re still looking at using Zoom to meet.

We are a no pressure book club, you don’t have to read the full book to participate. You do however have to sign up.

Ready?

The Woman’s Hour


by Elaine Weiss

Nashville, August 1920. Thirty-five states have approved the Nineteenth Amendment, granting women the right to vote; one last state–Tennessee–is needed for women’s voting rights to be the law of the land. The suffragists face vicious opposition from politicians, clergy, corporations, and racists who don’t want black women voting. And then there are the “Antis”–women who oppose their own enfranchisement, fearing suffrage will bring about the nation’s moral collapse. And in one hot summer, they all converge for a confrontation, replete with booze and blackmail, betrayal and courage.

Following a handful of remarkable women who led their respective forces into battle, The Woman’s Hour is the gripping story of how America’s women won their own freedom, and the opening campaign in the great twentieth-century battles for civil rights.
