In honor of National Women’s History month, Norwin Public Library will be presenting “Hidden in Plain Sight”, a program honoring Sarah B. Cochran, a Fayette County native who was an influential suffragist, philanthropist, and business rival of H.C. Frick. Yet because she was a woman, few traces of her remain in the historical record.
New Jersey author Kimberly Hess has meticulously researched the life of “the nation’s only coal queen” for her groundbreaking book, A Lesser Mortal: The Unexpected Life of Sarah B. Cochran.
Ms. Hess will present her program via Zoom at the Norwin Library on March 22 at 6PM, joined by local genealogist Donna Edwards-Jordan, a descendant of the Cochran family, who served as a consultant for the book. There will be a discussion following the presentation and signed copies of “A Lesser Mortal” will be available for sale.
The program is free but registration is required. Please call the library at 724-863-4700 x 3 or stop by the circulation desk to register.
