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 Hudson Library will host its sixth annual “Pitch Night” on Tuesday, November 13 at 6:30 p.m. Seven finalists will be selected from the pool of online applications to pitch their business ideas to a panel of expert judges in front of an audience.
Participants will need to apply online at hudsonlibrary.org for one of the 10-minute time slots available for this “shark tank” style program. Online applications will be accepted starting Monday, October 8, and must be received by Monday, October 29, 2018. The seven finalists chosen to pitch will be notified by Monday, November 5. A $3,000 cash prize will be awarded to the first place winner, second place will receive $1,500 and third place will receive $500. The public is welcome to participate as a member of the audience and watch the competition.
This event is one of many planned for the City of Hudson’s celebration of Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW), returning for the fifth consecutive year, November 11-17. “Pitch Night” and GEW 2018 are generously supported by the Burton D. Morgan Foundation.
