February Luncheon-- Author Canden Schwantes Arciniega on The Wild Women of Washington
Time & Location
About the Event
Washington, D.C. has been home to a multiplicity of groundbreaking, rule-defying, and brave women over the ages. Canden Schwantes Arciniega, an author, historian, and tour guide, has shared work on Mary Touvestre, a former slave who stymied Confederate strategies during the Civil War, Dr. Mary E. Walker, who dressed as a man to serve as a doctor at Union hospitals, and many others. In an intimate luncheon setting, she will relay some of the stories she’s learned, and lesser known facts about D.C. at Charter 100 DC’s monthly event at Blacksalt.
Lunch will be served, and prospective new members are most welcome. Please let us know in advance of any food allergies or special accommodations.
