Training School for Nurses Book Cover Art
Wednesday, October 3, 2012 - 7:00pm - 8:30pm

Join local author Virginia LeClaire for an engaging discussion of her first book, "The Traverse City State Hospital Training School for Nurses," the culmination of more than two years of research. LeClaire's talk will focus on the Training School and the more than 400 nurses who graduated from the institution, revealing the lives of the women as well as operations and working conditions at the State Hospital. Her previous lecture drew a crowd of more than 100 people! LeClaire will be selling signed copies of her book, with all proceeds going to the History Center of Traverse City. Librarian Amy Barritt will provide an introduction and give a brief talk on TADL special collections and resources LeClaire used in her research.

This program will take place in the McGuire Community Room.
