Second Saturday Story Time
The Shasta Historical Society hosts a history themed story time on the second Saturday of each month. About 1/2 hour in length, it is appropriate for children ten and under. Older children are of course welcome, too! This month’s selection: Elizabeth Leads the Way: Elizabeth Cady Stanton and the Right to Vote by Tanya Lee Stone. Read by Intern, Kelsey Farquhar.
Listen to learn about how Elizabeth Cady Stanton stood up and fought for what she believed in. From an early age, she knew that women were not given rights equal to men. But rather than accept her lesser status, Elizabeth went to college and later gathered other like-minded women to challenge the right to vote. Here is the inspiring story of an extraordinary woman who changed America forever because she would not take “no” for an answer.
