The East Lansing Public Library and the Capital Area District Library (CADL) are putting together reading lists for books related to the struggle for suffrage. We hope to form an Evening Book Group to discuss some of these books...more to come. Here's a reading list for younger readers that you might enjoy sharing
We will be marching is several parades during the summer months and will publish the dates and locations shortly. Plan on joining us at the Independence Day Parade in Lansing on July 4, 2020!
