Talking Women: A Conversation about Women in the Western Reserve

March 17 @ 3:00 pm 4:00 pm

In researching the exhibit on the Connecticut Western Reserve, the Litchfield Historical Society staff were captivated by the stories of women who migrated to Ohio, often told through their own words in letters and diaries.

Join the Litchfield Historical Society on Sunday, March 17th at 3:00 p.m. for a candid conversation between the Litchfield Historical Society’s Curator, Alex Dubois; Archivist, Linda Hocking; and Educator, Kate Zullo, as they discuss the aspects of these stories that interested them, the experiences they connected with, and the questions they still have about the lives of these women.

This lecture is part of the series, Migration and Removal: Documenting the Historically Underrepresented Voices of Westward Expansion. The program series explores the experiences of women, free and enslaved African Americans, and Indigenous peoples during the period of Westward Expansion. To accommodate audiences in Connecticut, Ohio, and beyond, this lecture is being hosted in person at the Litchfield Historical Society and simultaneously online via Zoom.

This program series is made possible through the generous support of the family of John Mayher.
