Just in time for Mothers Day, local author Suzanne Schnittman presents "Motherhood is Universal, From the 19th Century to Today." Suzanne's talk is based on her book, "Provocative Mothers and Their Precocious Daughters," in which she explores myths and truths of (mostly) daughters and their relationships with their mothers. She bases her research on letters between women's rights leaders and their daughters, then weaves in the real-life experiences of a few local women you will recognize.
