Virtual Book Talks With Anne Gardiner Perkins (Author of Yale Needs Women)
Connie Royster writes:
Several women in our class of 1972 have participated in virtual book talks with Anne Gardiner Perkins whose book Yale Needs Women chronicles the history of the first women in Yale College. Kay Hill and Connie Royster did a book talk with Anne at Breakwater Books in Guilford, CT; Shelley Fisher Fishkin ’71 and Connie Royster spoke to the Wilton (CT) Historical Society as part of their women’s stories series; Shirley Daniels, Connie Royster, and Elizabeth Spahn joined Anne for a talk to 1,000 students for the 50th anniversary of coeducation at Phillips Exeter Academy. Other 1972 women joined the zoom listed. Each talk revealed new pieces of the history of coeducation.
