In 2020, our nation will celebrate the 100th anniversary of women gaining the vote with the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment to the Constitution. I have been privileged to participate in the celebration through my book, "Women Win the Vote! 19 for the 19th Amendment." It is forthcoming from Norton Young Readers, an imprint of W.W. Norton, with a release date of February 11, 2020.
For many years, I was a financial writer for magazines and newspapers, including the online Wall Street Journal and the New York Times, and for companies in the financial services industry, including Merrill Lynch. Earlier in my career, I was an editor for a daily newspaper in New Jersey, and later worked for Dow Jones, editing the Wall Street Journal and Barron's for its pioneering electronic news service, News/Retrieval. "Women Win the Vote!" is my eighth published book.
Women Win the Vote! 19 for the 19th Amendment
A bold new telling of the American woman's suffrage fight, Women Win the Vote! introduces middle-grade readers to 19 suffragists, both well known and little known, who fought to gain women the citizen's right to vote. In short biographies of vivid prose, the women are lifted from old black-and-white photos and brought to colorful life.
