SPRING PROGRAM NOTES
Women who make a difference have been the focus of our spring general programs.
MARCH 10: Dr. Patricia Franklin-Therrell has been a prison educator for two decades and has served for ten years on a national board of Correctional Educators. The movie she had made with inmates at the Monroe facility was spellbinding. She was accompanied by a former inmate and their discussion turned to what they have found to be effective ways for the community to support continued recovery for inmates following release.
APRIL 14: Nabila Waqar was born and raised in Pakistan and has lived in the United States since 2012, moving here with her husband who is a doctor in public health. In her personal statement she shares how she grew up in a military family, moving throughout Pakistan, giving her opportunities other girls in her country didn’t have. Through her extensive travels, she has seen firsthand the mutual respect people can have in cross-cultural settings.
MAY 14: Social reformer Dorothea Dix is the subject of New York Times bestselling author Jane Kirkpatrick’s most recent book, One Glorious Ambition. Jane speaks on the power of story, describing her writing process as similar to weaving: “I look to the landscape, relationships. spirituality and work to find the threads. Historical research, interviews with descendants along with my mental health background and imagination are the loom upon which I untangle the stories of my main characters—women of history.”
