Denver Woman's Press Club
Welcome two DWPC members who mine history and women’s stories for compelling writing.
Nancy Mayborn Peterson and Marcia Tremmel Goldstein discuss why they find writing about women in history so fascinating, bringing history to life in significant and important ways. Join us for a riveting salon about an important subject.
Whether the need was to house orphans or rivet airplanes together, Peterson knows that American women have always stepped forward to do the job. Of every race, creed and culture, the glittering threads of their lives provide both strength and sparkle in the fabric of our heritage. Sometimes they celebrated, more times they are little known. Where do you find such women’s stories? Why should you tell them? How do you make them come alive?
Nancy Mayborn Peterson has won awards for winning fiction and non-fiction that illuminates women’s stories. Her novel, Not to be Forgiven, describes the impact World War II has on the lives of a small-town mother and her daughter. It was named Best Adult Novel by the Colorado Authors’ League and won a Finalist Award for Best First Novel in the nation-wide INDIE competition.
Dr. Marcia Tremmel Goldstein is a Denver native, and a historian who specializes in the history of women in Colorado and the American West. Marcia has been an active member of women’s history groups for more than twenty years. Denver Women in Their Places: A Guide to Women’s History Sites, published by Historic Denver, Inc. in 2002, is Goldstein’s handy guide book that includes over forty major historical sites where women made history in our city, including the Denver Woman‘s PressClub. Marcia will provide tips and strategies for researching historical women and their organizations, as well as insights into interpreting women’s experiences when the historical record is sparse.
