A collection of short stories from a chorus of bestselling writers all set on the same day, October 23, 1915, in which over a million women marched for the right to vote in New York City, with an introduction by Kristin Hannah
Stories from Suffragette City is a collection of short stories from the leading voices in historical fiction that all take place on a single day: the day one million women marched for the right to vote in New York City in 1915. A day filled with a million different stories, and a million different voices longing to be heard. Taken together, these stories from writers at the top of their bestselling game become a chorus, stitching together a portrait of a country looking for a fight, and echo into a resounding force strong enough to break even the most stubborn of glass ceilings.
With stories from:
M. J. Rose
Katherine J. Chen
Christina Baker Kline
and Fiona Davis
“As we approach the 100th anniversary of the first time women voted in a presidential race, how fitting it is to read short stories that illuminate one event that helped women achieve that right: a historic women’s march in New York City in 1915. This book‘s collection includes authors whose work I devour—from Dolen Perkins-Valdez to Chris Bohjalian to Christina Baker Kline—and here they are, all in one place.”
