Women in Long Island's Past
Natalie A. Naylor

May 18, 2014, 2:00 p.m.

The Community Church of
East Williston

Nationally notable women and local leaders have been part of Long Island's history, though nearly invisible in most accounts. Authors and artists, sunksquaws and suffragists, pioneering pilots and the Janes who made the planes, and innumerable other women have all left their mark on Long Island's past. Even "ordinary" women have played important roles throughout our history. The speaker is a retired Hofstra University professor and president of our Historical Society. Following the talk, Dr. Naylor will sign copies of her recent book, Women in Long Island's Past: A History of Eminent Ladies and Everyday Lives.

(Further information about, and directions to this program, and a list of past programs and planned future programs is available on the Calendar page.)
