On Tuesday, November 10, 2020, at 7:30 pm, Flanker Press Author, Susan Chalker Browne, will be giving a lecture for the Wessex Society of Newfoundland, on the following Topic: “Remembering Remarkable Women”

Abstract: On November 11, Armistice Day, we pause to remember the men who fought and died in war. Not so much do we pause to remember the women of those times. Now Susan Chalker Browne brings us the stories of some of these women, based on her recent book, Mother of the Regiment and Other Remarkable Women of Newfoundland and Labrador. May Furlong, Elsie Holloway, Lydia Campbell, Armine Gosling, and Georgina Stirling were remarkable women who pushed boundaries and made a difference at the turn of the twentieth century. World War One was pivotal in most of their lives. Susan Chalker Browne will highlight the obstacles these women overcame, the tragedies they endured, the incredible success they achieved as well as the ambition, intelligence, and grit they all shared. Five trailblazing women who pressed against the social norms of a century ago and helped change life and attitudes in Newfoundland and Labrador.
