LWV Reading Series: Fly Girls
6:30 p.m., Wheat Penny Restaurant, 515 Wayne Ave, Dayton. In honor of the centennial of ratification of the 19th Amendment granting women the right to vote, the Greater Dayton League of Women Voters is hosting its own reading series. The books are about the amazing accomplishments of women before, during, and after the vote that somehow never made it into the history books. Our first book is Fly Girls: How Five Daring Women Defied All Odds and Made Aviation History, by Keith O’Brien. To participate, you can order the book or check it out from the Dayton Metro Library, then join us for the discussion on Tuesday the 14th. RSVP by Monday, May 13, to D.J. Shade, so we can give the restaurant a head count. Stay tuned for upcoming books and discussion dates in this year-long series.
5:30 p.m., Top of the Market, 32 Webster Street Dayton. Cash bar available. Cost is $20, payable online through the link below, or by mailing a check to the League office at LWVGDA 127 North Ludlow St, Dayton OH 45402. RSVP by May 16
Dine & Dish with Jewelia Ann Galloway Higgins
5:30 p.m., Dayton Woman’s Club, 225 North Ludlow. Join us for a stroll through Dayton in the 1800s prior to the 19th Amendment. Ms. Higgins, a Dayton native, was a suffragette, African American civic Leader and community activist. She was part of the Dayton Woman’s Suffragist Association, which unlike many suffragist groups across the country, actively sought to work with African American women and immigrants. Jewelia will be represented by historian and artist Andrea Walker-Cummings, a member of the African American Visual Arts Guild who creates her art through hand needlework. Cost is $40. Cash bar.
