POSTPONED: Elisa Boxer discusses her new children’s nonfiction book, THE VOICE THAT WON THE VOTE

This is the little-known story of a mother, a son, and a handwritten note that led to one of the nation's biggest wins for women's rights...In August 1920, women's suffrage in America came down to Tennessee. If the state legislature approved the 19th Amendment, it would be ratified, giving all women the right to vote. The historic moment hinged on one legislator, who tipped the scale toward equality because of a letter from his mother. This is the true story of that letter, which finally gave all American women their voice.
