To commemorate the centennial of women’s suffrage in Ohio, award-winning journalist Elaine Weiss will tell the nail-biting climax of one of the greatest political battles in American history: the ratification of the constitutional amendment that granted women the right to vote. NPR called her book, The Woman’s Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote, “stirring, definitive, and engrossing…Weiss brings a lucid, lively, journalistic tone to the story…The Woman’s Hour is compulsory reading.”

The Watson-Ewell-Currin Community Art Gallery is open to the public during regular library hours. This
gallery represents, and is named for, four generations of artists, all from the same family. It is named for a family of artists that started in Chicago, and is continued in Hudson, Ohio. It has been endowed in hopes that it will provide a display area for Hudson artists of all ages, from the very young to those veterans in the field.
The Hudson Library & Historical Society welcomes and encourages local artists and students to display their work at the library. Please view the gallery brochure for more information about the history of the names above the door.
