Author Katherine Sherbrooke tells us about a gal with guts
Born on a farm in 1818, Lucy Stone dreamt of extraordinary things for a girl of her time, like continuing her education beyond the eighth grade and working for the abolitionist cause, and of ordinary things, such as raising a family of her own. But when she learns that the Constitution affords no rights to married women, she declares that she will never marry and dedicates her life to fighting for change.

She is an alumna of Dartmouth College and Stanford Business School, and wanted to be an author from the time she opened her first book.
Leaving Coy’s Hill, her third book, was selected by the Massachusetts Book Awards for an Honors in Fiction Award, and is an unforgettable novel based on the remarkable life of pioneering feminist and abolitionist Lucy Stone. Copies of Leaving Coy's Hill will be set aside at the library's Circulation desk, available as an ebook and digital audiobook on Hoopla and Libby.
