American History: Now Featuring Women

It's Ladies Week on the DC book tour circuit, as there are a number of biographical-y things about important historical events that one wouldn't necessarily equate with certain obscure ladies who were actually quite integral, in these important historical events. For instance, the New Deal. And "liberty," as a concept. Also special guest appearances by your Congressman Chris Van Hollen and moderately popular Newseum exhibit Cokie Roberts.
