VIRTUAL EVENT for Her Name Was Mary Katharine with ELLA SCHWARTZ and DOW PHUMIRUK
A closer look at one of the Revolutionary War's unsung heroes!
When the Declaration was all drafted and signed, one question still remained: how would it get it distributed across the American colonies? Luckily, one newspaper publisher stepped up: Mary Katharine Goddard, an accomplished, free-thinking businesswoman and supporter of the free press.
With Mary Katherine Goddard's help, the Declaration of Independence was read all across our new country -- with Mary Katherine Goddard's name printed proudly at the bottom, the only woman whose name appears on the Declaration.
Today, ELLA SCHWARTZ and DOW PHUMIRUK, the author and illustrator duo behind Her Name Was Mary Katherine: The Only Woman Whose Name Is on the Declaration of Independence, will be joined in conversation by KAREN FITZGIBBONS, a regent for the Daughters of the American Revolution! Together, they will discuss this fantastic new picture book biography of Mary Katharine Goddard, as well as the contributions of women to the Revolution and to American history since.
Don't miss this chance to learn more about an unsung American hero!
