To celebrate the November 2017 one hundredth anniversary of the granting of the vote to the women of New York State, author Antonia Petrash will present on the suffrage movement on Long Island and Arlene Hinkemeyer will focus on the suffragists of the East End, including Mrs. Thomas L. (May Groot) Manson of Main Street, East Hampton, whose John Singer Sargent portrait is at left. Check out our suffrage exhibition in the Tom Twomey Gallery and the multimedia work of the Library’s young adult team as they bring the local women’s suffrage story of a century ago to life.
