December 9: WHM’s Next History Book Group Meeting

On Thursday, December 9 from 1-2:30 p.m. we will be meeting via Zoom (see link below) to discuss Women of Privilege: 100 Years of Love and Loss in a Family of the Hudson River Valley by Susan Gillotti. The book traces the decline of a once-privileged Hudson River Valley family whose neighbors were Vanderbilts, Delanos, and Roosevelts. Based on diaries and journals, and written by a family descendant, it combines biography and memoir with social history. Copies are available through your local library or at most bookstores!
