Jennifer Chambers Presents: An Evening with Abigail Scott Duniway
Author Jennifer Chambers will present “An Evening With Abigail Scott Duniway,” taking place at the Fern Ridge Library on Tuesday, December 10, at 7:00 PM, featuring a conversation with the author as she portrays the pioneer publisher and talks about her adventures promoting women’s rights. Chambers is proud to bring Abigail to the Library for the first time. “An Evening” will give attendees a window into the life of the pioneer and illustrate the difficulties that women of the late 1800’s had to endure. She will talk about her life on the Oregon Trail, as a publisher, and an early suffragist. "Abigail,” or Chambers, will even serve some food common to the era and share recipes that could be appropriate for the busy modern cook! History comes alive when you’re “speaking” to a historical character and more so when you get to taste it too. Jennifer Chambers is a local author, speaker, and part owner of Groundwaters Publishing. She will have copies of many of her books at the event, including her latest work featuring Abigail, “Hesitate No Longer: Abigail Scott Duniway and Susan B. Anthony in Oregon (History Press).” She can be reached at her website, http://www.jenniferbyerschambers.com. This immersive experience is sponsored by The Friends of the Fern Ridge Library. Free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Laura at 541-393-1043 or email@example.com.
