Visit Northeast Library for a special evening with librarian and author Kate Stewart. Stewart will speak on her book A Well-Read Woman: The Life, Loves, and Legacy of Ruth Rappaport, which follows the life of a legendary Capitol Hill resident from Nazi Germany to Seattle, Israel and Vietnam. Stewart will discuss how Rappaport's love of reading and her experiences with censorship affected her life and career as a librarian. During American Archives Month, come hear the story of a champion of history and the written word.
Copies of the book will be available for sale and signing.
