On Friday's Walt Bodine Show, historian Monroe Dodd discusses the history of remarkable women in Kansas, with past KCUR contributor and author, Gina Kaufmann. Her new book More than Petticoats: Remarkable Kansas Women tells the stories of women who shaped the Sunflower State, including a dentist, an orator, a pilot, a mayor and a fugitive slave.
Plus, we hear about some other project Gina's been up to, including a series of gendered heath care narratives called A Waiting Room of One's Own.
You can attend the book release/performance/panel/party for A Waiting Room of One's Own on Friday, January 27th 5-9 p.m. at the Lawrence Arts Center, 940 New Hampshire Street. Gina will be there moderating a panel as part of the event.
Gina will be giving a reading at the National Archives for More Than Petticoats Thursday, March 1st at 6:30pm. You can RSVP by calling 816-268-8010.
