A huge thank you to the organizers and our visiting authors Tammy Leitner and T. Jefferson Parker, for presenting such a wonderful event. In a nod to the authors, the theme was, “Whodunnit Under The Sun?” Tammy, an investigative journalist, presented “Don’t Say A Thing”, a riveting account of her eight-year investigation into a serial criminal and his many victims. Jeff, a well-known mystery writer, presented his latest novel, “The Rescue”.

Notable Women in History

The Term “Rosie the Riveter” served as shorthand for the women workers flooding the industrial workplace during WWII. The first Rosie the Riveter popped up in a popular tune released early in 1943. As the song put it, “She’s a part of the assembly line. She’s making history, working for victory, Rosie the Riveter!” The song along with Norman Rockwell’s cover depicting a woman riveter on lunch break on the Saturday Evening Post magazine made her a lasting icon.

“We Can Do It!” is an American WWII wartime poster produced by J Howard Miller in 1943 for Westinghouse Electric as an inspirational image to boost female worker morale. It was rediscovered in the early 1980s and widely reproduced in many forms to promote feminism and other political issues. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/We_Can_Do_It!
