Presented by Lucia McMahon, Ph.D.
On Wednesday, March 25, 2020 the Wayne Public Library’s Lunchbox Learning Program will feature a lecture by Lucia McMahon, Ph.D., Professor of History and Department Chair, William Paterson University, where she regularly teaches courses in historical methods, early national U.S. history, and women’s history. Her research broadly focuses on women’s intellectual and educational history with particular focus on the recovery of relatively “unknown” women’s voices and experiences. McMahon is the author of several books and articles, including Mere Equals: The Paradox of Educated Women in the Early American Republic (Cornell University Press, 2012), and The Journal of Rachel Van Dyke, 1810-1811 (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2000). Doors open at 12:00 pm for coffee, tea and cookies and this one hour program begins at 12:30 p.m. This program is free and open to the public. The Wayne Public Library meets all ADA regulations and is a barrier-free building.
This program is sponsored, in part, by the Wayne Public Library and the Friends of the Wayne Public Library. This project is funded, in part, by the Passaic County Cultural & Heritage Council at Passaic County Community College from funds granted by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
