Laurie Loewenstein Reads from "Unmentionables"
In this debut, history, in the form of women’s suffrage, WWI, and American race relations, is writ small, as Marian Elliot Adams arrives in Emporia, Ill. in August 1917 to take part in a popular adult education event of the period. Her intent—to discuss “the restrictive nature of women’s undergarments”—proves equal parts shocking & titillating.
"This immensely entertaining & illuminating book transports the reader back in time...Exceptionally readable and highly recommended." —Library Journal
