Books in Common: Jane Kirkpatrick & Greg Nokes

Thursday, September 3, 2020 - 7:30pm

Books in Common is excited to welcome bestselling author Jane Kirkpatrick to discuss her new book Something Worth Doing with fellow writer Greg Nokes. Tackling the early women's suffrage movement in Oregon, Abigail Scott denies herself the joys of a simpler life to achieve her dream of securing rights for women. But running a controversial newspaper and leading suffrage efforts in the Northwest carry a great personal cost. Based on a true story, Something Worth Doing is a tender, powerful story of a woman's conflicts--with society and herself. Greg Nokes is no stranger to pioneer history, having studied the stories of marginalized communities during westward expansion - looking particularly at the Black slave trade in Oregon, as well as the exploitation of Chinese communities in the Northwest. Join these to for an illuminating discussion of historical civil rights movements in the Northwest.
