Lavery Speaker Series Welcomes Dr. Catherine Kerrison
Bosler Library welcomes Dr. Catherie Kerrison, author of Jefferson's Daughters. Thomas Jefferson was the father of three daughters. This talk will explore the different life paths the sister chose and to see both the possibilities and the limitations for women and people of color as a result of the American Revolution. Their stories help us to understand issues of race and gender in our own day and to reflect on the personal and political legacy of one of the most fascinating Founding Fathers.
The speaker series is named in memory of former Assistant Director for Public and Information Services, Dennis M. Lavery.
