TNT - Thursday Night Talks lecture series
The Clatsop County Historical Society's Thursday Night Talks (TNT) lecture series for May 16th will be: Women in History presented by local author Marianne Monson.
Marianne Monson has worked with books her whole life, as an editor, a passionate reader, and an author. She is the author of nine books and counting, including more recently, Women of the Blue & Gray: True Civil War stories of Mothers, Medics, Soldiers, and Spies.
Women of the Blue and Gray is a collection of short biographies and sketches of the women who have populated the background and footnotes of American Civil War history. These women, of diverse social status and race, made contributions during the Civil War as field medics, doctors, slaves, disguised soldiers and, of course, mothers and wives.
Monson teaches at Clatsop Community College and founded the Writer's Guild in Astoria.
