League and Portland Public Library Book Club, Riverton Branch

League members are invited to join participants of the Portland Public Library’s Riverton Book Group in a discussion of Leadership: In Turbulent Times by Doris Kearns Goodwin (2018).  

Are leaders born or made?  In Leadership, Goodwin draws upon the four presidents she has studied most closely—Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Lyndon B. Johnson—to show how they recognized leadership qualities within themselves and were recognized as leaders by others.”  Each overcame personal and professional challenges to “confront the contours and dilemmas of their times.  At their best, all were guided by a sense of moral purpose. Elizabeth Miller, League member, will lead the February discussion.

In case of inclement weather forcing the Library to close early, the discussion will be rescheduled for Thursday February 20.  For Library questions:  797-2915.

The Struggle for Women's Suffrage: Revisiting Our History, Rededicating Our Future

2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment when women won the right to vote. This presentation, co-sponsored by the Rockland Public Library, celebrates that historic victory and the women who led the effort, while also providing a sober reflection on the compromises that split the movement and left many voters behind, choices that continue to echo 100 years later. The talk will end with a brief overview of the work that remains to be done. We will meet in the Community Room. For more information, email brunswick@lwvme.org.
