A discussion and reading from The Last Daughter of Elizabeth Light will focus on how the research of my family history led to writing a fictional family saga. As the novel works backward from Lizzie Kurtz, a modern woman, to her family’s connection to Mary Wollstonecraft and the women’s rights movement of the late 1700s, it reveals the indelible impression left on each generation by the one before it. These eight women and one man are inexorably connected by more than just a bloodline.
