About the event:

Join co-author Christine Wolf for “Politics, Partnerships, & Power: The lives of Ralph E. and Marguerite Stitt Church,” the first biography of the twentieth-century powerhouse couple who, with prescient and persistent methodologies and hearts, gave four decades of legislative service, and established much of Illinois’ dedicated political tradition. Spanning everything from the awkward dance of prohibition in Evanston to Marguerite Stitt Church’s involvement in the creation of the Peace Corps, with a particular focus on her remarkable legacy as a pioneer for women in government, this historical nonfiction is both a resource and a gripping delight.

The League of Women Voters of Evanston will share voter information and insights into its work at the event.

You can find more information about Marguerite Stitt Church on the Evanston Women’s History Project website.

Books will be available for purchase and signing.
