Virtual Reading of Local Author’s New Book

The Caldwell-Lake George Library and the Richards Library invite you to

a virtual reading by Lorraine Duvall of her latest book, Finding A Woman’s Place: The Story of a 1970s Feminist Collective in the Adirondacks

Wednesday June 24, 2020, 5-6pm

In a Zoom meeting, Duvall will share the fascinating history of a women’s community in Athol, New York, which served as a safe harbor for hundreds of women during the tumultuous times of the second wave of feminism in the 1970s.

To receive an invitation for this event, please indicate your interest by sending an email to lorauthor@gmail.com with the header ‘Lake George Reading.’ An opportunity for a Zoom discussion will be available after her readings.

Forty-six years ago, seven women left behind the lives they knew and created this commune deep in the Adirondack Mountains that they called “A Woman’s Place.” From 1974 to 1982 A Woman’s Place served as a refuge for self-discovery that changed the lives of hundreds of women.

Award-winning author Duvall brings a viewpoint to the story as an active participant, attending a retreat at A Woman’s Place in 1974, and as a researcher examining historical documents and locating the principal founders and organizers of the commune to write the full story.

Thanks to the Barbara Durkish, Director of the Caldwell-Lake George Library, and Michael Sullivan, Director/Librarian of the Richards Library in Warrensburg, for sponsoring this event as A Woman’s Place was situated in their part of the Adirondacks.
