MONTCLAIR, NJ — Watchung Booksellers is excited to host Kate Moore, author of “The Woman They Could Not Silence” as part of its ongoing “Evening with the Authors” virtual events. She’ll be in conversation with Montclair journalist Gabrielle Glaser on Wednesday, July 21, at 7:30 p.m.
Kate Moore is the New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of “The Radium Girls.” Here she brings the dark and dramatic, but ultimately uplifting, tale of Elizabeth Packard, a housewife and mother of six, who is committed to an insane asylum by her husband who fears her intellect and desire for independence. Her inspirational journey of survival sparked lasting change for women’s rights and exposed injustices that still resonate today.
Montclair journalist Gabrielle Glaser is the bestselling author of “Her Best-Kept Secret: Why Women Drink — and How They Can Regain Control” and most recently, “American Baby: A Mother, A Child, and the Shadow History of Adoption.”
