Will she submit to his lust to save her lover from the firing squad?
Learn about World War I heroines from local author Kathryn Atwood. She'll share 70 archival photos from her book, "Women Heroes of World War I" and tell how women worldwide mobilized for the war effort in a variety of ways. In the process, these women became powerful symbols both in their government's propaganda efforts as well as in the women's rights movements of their day. Atwood will define the concept of hero in both world wars while illustrating how some heroines of the World War I directly inspired those who participated in the war. Atwood will have books available for sale and signing.
