SHE THE PEOPLE Walking Tours & Other News

Hello everyone!

First of all, I am thrilled to have gotten an amazing review of SHE THE PEOPLE in the Martha’s Vineyard Times after my appearance on the island:

‘She the People’: Author Jen Deaderick tells both a political and social story

I love the Vineyard so much!

The big news this week, though, is that I’m putting together some SHE THE PEOPLE themed walking tours of Boston and Cambridge.

The current available dates are:

Sat, June 29 - 10AM
Sat, July 6 - 10AM
Sun, July 14 - 10AM

The cost will be $15 per person, $30 to include a signed copy of SHE THE PEOPLE

Get your tickets now while the getting’s good!

I am working on making the tours accessible. A friend who uses a wheelchair is going to do a test run with me, and I’ll offer plenty of chances to sit and rest. Still, make sure that you note any accessibility requests you might have when you buy your tickets, so I am prepared.

I will also happily put together custom tours for groups. Contact me to set something up:

In other news, I’ll be participating in the Her Flag tour celebrating the anniversary of the 19th Amendment when it comes to Boston on July 25th. I’ll have more information closer to the date.

Finally, if you like making plans way in advance, I have some things coming up in October.

I’ll be speaking at the Unitarian Universalist Society of Wellesley Hills on October 24 at 7PM.

UU crowds are always lively, so it should be fun.

I’m also putting together a mini tour of the South earlier in the month, with potential stops in Atlanta, Chattanooga, Knoxville, and Nashville. I’ll keep you posted on that.

It goes without saying that if I do an event in Chattanooga, I’ll be reading from my chapter about the 1940s.

The Nicholas Brothers and Dorothy Dandridge - "Chattanooga Choo Choo" from "Sun Valley Serenade" (1941)

And I believe that’s all the news. At least for now.

As always, check out my Events page every once in a while, connect with me on Facebook, follow me on Twitter, or whatever else floats your boat.


LAUNCH!!!

Oh my gosh! What a whirlwind!

Last night was the fabulous launch party at Toscanini’s in Cambridge. Kathy & Chris from Belmont Books were kind enough to sell copies of SHE THE PEOPLE to the masses. People ate ice cream while I signed books and did a quick reading. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.

Gather round, children…

Gather round, children…

This morning, DAME Magazine published an excerpt, chapter 8, which talks about the explosive feminism of the early 1970s:

THE FEMINIST ROAR HEARD ‘ROUND THE WORLD

They also launched a giveaway of the book to five people who become members of the magazine:

So all that was cool enough, but then THIS HAPPENED:

I will never, ever recover. Ever.
