Women’s History Month Talk – Remarkable Women of California

March 22, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Members are complimentary, guests are $5.
Reservation Required.  Tickets available HERE.

In honor of Women’s History Month the Museum will host a series of talks to inspire you.  Join us for a talk by Marilyn Chandler DeYoung who will discuss her book, Remarkable Women of California.  The book highlights the most illustrious, talented and provocative women of the Golden State.

From philanthropists to athletes, performers to politicians, entrepreneurs to educators, and First Ladies to writers.  DeYoung has spent a lifetime developing friendships with many of these famous, and no so famous women.  Using historical references, personal interviews and her own memories, she has crafted eighty-two vivid biographies that give a distinct social history of the women’s movement and the growth of California.
