Amazing Women Who Changed the West


Huntington Beach, Calif.--ulitzer Prize-nominee Craig MacDonald will speak about courageous, daring and determined women, who changed society in their own way during the 19th & early 20th Century. One helped create Yosemite, another became the first woman to vote, yet another helped disadvantaged youth, who went on to become best-selling authors. Historian MacDonald, the Contributing Editor of Sierra Heritage Magazine and a longtime conference speaker, will recount the stories of these largely unsung women who made the West a much better place. A member of Phi Alpha Theta, the national history honor society, MacDonald will autograph his latest book on the Gold Rush.


Cost: Free admission. Location: Newland Center, Newland Barn (behind Newland House), Beach & Adams, Huntington Beach, CA
