Description de l’éditeur
One City. One Movement. A World of Stories.
Stories from Suffragette City is a collection of short stories that all take place on a single day: October 23, 1915. It’s the day when tens of thousands of women marched up Fifth Avenue, demanding the right to vote in New York City. Thirteen of the nation’s bestselling authors have taken this day as inspiration to raise the voices of history and breathe fresh life into their struggles and triumphs.
The characters depicted here, some well-known, others lost to the sands of time, each inspire and reinvigorate the power of voting. We follow a young woman who is swept up in the protests when all she expected was to come sell her apples in the city. We see Ava Vanderbilt as her stiff upper crust sensibility is transformed over the course of the single fateful day. Ida B. Welles battles not only for women’s suffrage but for the equality of every woman, no matter the color of her skin. Each story stands on its own, but together Stories From Suffragette City forms its own symphony – working in harmony to paint a portrait of a country looking for a fight and ever restless for progress and equality.
With stories from:
Katherine J. Chen
Christina Baker Kline
and Fiona Davis
