Wilks Conference Center.  At 7 p.m, Monday, March 2, Sherr will give a special presentation reflecting on the 100th anniversary of the U.S. Constitution’s 19th Amendment, which guaranteed voting rights on the basis of sexual equality.

An award-winning investigative reporter specializing in social change and women’s issues, Sherr spent more than 30 years at ABC News, including more than 20 years as a correspondent with ABC’s flagship news program, “20/20.” Her presentation weaves together the historical significance of the 19th Amendment with an appreciation of the power of women such as Susan B. Anthony in the movement for change.

A public reception and book signing with Lynn Sherr will take place following the lecture.
