Whenever change happens, reading fiction and nonfiction in combination – “BookBundles” – can be a great way to gain understanding and participate in a new conversation. In connection with the new exhibition Women Get the Vote: A Historic Look at the 19th Amendment, this seminar offers three BookBundle-based discussions, exploring cultural questions raised by women’s suffrage and still debated today. Each session considers books from different decades and/or genres that tackle an issue, concern, or viewpoint highlighted in the fight for the 19th Amendment.

Heidi K. Weber is a reader, writer, life strategist, and certified coach who leads The5 Book Club, presents webinars, and writes about the BookBundle Method at TheLiterarySalon.com.
