Author Event with Elizabeth Jacoway
Welcome to WordsWorth Books
We are pleased to host Elizabeth Jacoway, editor of the upcoming "No Straight Path: Becoming Women Historians" for an author event and book signing. According to David Goldfield, Robert Lee Bailey professor of History, University of North Carolina at Charlotte, "No Straight Path" is a remarkable collective autobiography of how a generation of women historians of the American South challenged and overcame entrenched perceptions in allegedly enlightened academia to build successful teaching and research careers not only for themselves, but also for the women who came after them. Each account is both frustrating and inspiring: there were indeed no straight paths to success, and the work for full equality is not yet over.
