The River Campus Libraries invites you to attend a lecture from Dorothy Wickenden, executive editor of The New Yorker and moderator of the magazine's weekly podcast "Politics and More."

In this Neilly Series talk, Wickenden will discuss her new book, The Agitators The book tells the story of America before, during, and after the Civil War, through the intimate perspective of three friends and neighbors in Auburn, New York—Harriet Tubman, Frances Seward, and Martha Coffin Wright. Wickenden will reflect on the parallels between the era leading up to the Civil War and our current era as she seeks to inspire the "agitator" inside us all.

This lecture is co-sponsored by the Women's Network and the University of Rochester Alumni Book Club.
