Monday, November 7 @ 2:00 pm - Author Janis Robinson Daly

Author Janis Daly will be at the Library for a presentation of her new book, The Unlocked Path.  The story focuses on Eliza Pearson Edwards, a “New Woman” of the early 20th century: educated, career-minded, and independent. In 1897 Philadelphia, after witnessing her aunt's suicide, Eliza rejects her mother’s wishes for a society debut, and enters medical college. With the support of a circle of women and determined to conquer curriculum demands, battle sexism, and overcome doubts, Eliza charts a new life course. This program is limited to 40 people.  Registration is recommended.

After a career in sales and marketing and raising two boys, Janis Daly became active in reaching her family genealogy.  In her research, she found that her great-great-grandfather took an active part in founding the Woman’s Medical College in Philadelphia.   Inspired by that information, she felt that the stories of the graduates of the Woman’s Medical College needed to be told.  Thus began creative writing courses, extensive research, writer’s conferences and more.  She is always on the lookout for more stories that need to be told!
