LWV Martha's Vineyard Annual Meeting and Event. Meet author, Hannah Kimberly, who will speak about her recntly published book" A Woman's place Is at the Top - a Biography of Annie Smith Peck, Queen of the Climbers". Annie Smith Peck gained fame in 1885 when she first climbed the Matterhorn at age 45 - wearing pants!! Fifteen years later she was the first climber ever to conquer Mt. Huascarn (over 21,000 ft) in Peru. And, there is more to tell about this amazing woman!! She was a suffragette, a propagandist, an author and a lecturer about mulitnational industry and commerce. Please come, hear Ms. Kimberly speak and enjoy light refreshments. Meet members of the MV League and consider joining this active group. If you're not familiar with the LWV, we'll be happy to share information about what the League does nationally, in the state, and on the island.
