Athenian Dialogue: Diamonds and Deadlines VIRTUAL

Tuesday, October 24, 2023

Diamonds and Deadlines: A Talke of Greed, Deceit, and a Female Tycoon in the Gilded Age by Betsy Prioleau Hosted by: Maryland Municipal Clerks Association (MMCCA) Facilitated by: Anne Uecker 25 person maximum Please submit a registration form with payment by Wednesday, October 18, 2023 to: Awilda Hernandez City of Bowie 15901 Fred Robinson Way Bowie, MD 20716

Diamonds and Deadlines reveals the unknown, sensational life of the brilliant and brazen "empress of journalism", who dropped a bombshell at her death. She left her entire multimillion-dollar estate to women's suffrage-a never-equaled amount that guaranteed passage of the Nineteenth Amendment. In this dazzling biography, cultural historian Betsy Prioleau draws from diaries, correspondence, genealogies, and published works to provide an intimate look at the life of one of the Gilded Age's most complex, powerful women and unexpected feminist icons. Ultimately, Diamonds and Deadlines restores Mrs. Frank Leslie to her rightful place in history, as a monumental businesswoman who presage the feminist future and reflected, in bold relief, the Gilded Age, one of the most momentous seismic, and vivid epochs in American History.
