This event is being presented virtually. Kate Moore will join us live from England to discuss her new book, The Woman They Could Not Silence, which charts the incredible true story of Elizabeth Packard, a nineteenth-century housewife from Illinois who was committed to an insane asylum for daring to defy her husband and whose courageous fight for justice changed the world. Moore will share with us her research journey and the inspiration behind the book, as well as stun listeners with shocking facts about this piece of little-known history—facts that, powerfully, still resonate today.
The program will include a live question and answer session at the end of the presentation. KATE MOORE is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Radium Girls, which won the 2017 Goodreads Choice Award for Best History, was voted U.S. librarians’ favorite nonfiction book of 2017, and was named a Notable Nonfiction Book of 2018 by the American Library Association. A British writer based in London, Moore writes across a variety of genres and has had multiple titles on the Sunday Times bestseller list. Her passion as a writer is to help people to have a voice, especially those silenced through injustice. With every book, she hopes to take readers on a visceral journey so that they too can experience the extraordinary lives of others.
