Janis Robinson Daly Author Talk at Centerville Library

Free program at Centerville Public Library
We are excited to welcome local author Janis Robinson Daly to CPL!
In Janis Robinson Daly’s debut novel, The Unlocked Path, readers meet a “New Woman” of the early 20th century: educated, career-minded, independent Eliza Edwards. In 1897 Philadelphia, after witnessing her aunt’s suicide, Eliza rejects her mother’s wishes for a society debut, and at a time when only five percent of doctors are female, she enters the Woman’s Medical College of Pennsylvania. With the support of a circle of women and driven by a determination to conquer curriculum demands, battle sexism, and overcome doubts, Eliza charts her new life course. Combining science and sympathy, she triumphs to heal others and herself.
This program is in-person at CPL and free to the public! Copies of The Unlocked Path will be available for purchase.
