Date: Wednesday, March 16

Location: O'Brien's Oyster Bar and Seafood Tavern, 113 Main Street

To celebrate National Women’s History Month, Historic Annapolis is proud to present bestselling novelist Erika Robuck, who will discuss the real protagonists of her recent novels featuring American women in the Resistance in WWII. Lecture-The-Invisble-WomanBaltimore’s own Virginia Hall Goillot, a member of Maryland’s Women’s Hall of Fame, and Floridian Virginia Roush d’Albert-Lake are just two of the many American women involved in the war effort whose stories are so remarkable they seem too unbelievable to be true.
