Women’s History Month Book Event
March 1, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
St. Ann’s parishioner Beth Flynn is the deputy editor of photography at The New York Times who, with Times colleagues Marisa Schwartz Taylor, a fellow photo editor, and photographers Elizabeth D. Herman and Celeste Sloman, collaborated on The Women of the 116th Congress: Portraits of Power, published in the fall of 2019. As the publishers explain, the 2018 midterm elections brought a seismic change to what political power looks like in our country. The book documents 130 women of the 116th Congress “photographed in the style of portrait paintings…to highlight the stark difference between how we have historically viewed governance and how it has evolved.”
On Sunday, March 1, at 1:00 p.m. in St. Ann’s parish hall, Flynn and Herman will discuss the project and present a slide show of these powerful portraits. U.S. Congresswoman Nydia Velázquez (D-NY) will make an appearance and offer brief remarks. These accomplished women offer their presentation in the year we mark the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in the U.S. making it an especially timely opportunity for us. You are encouraged to invite others and join us!
