Reader’s Circle Book Discussion Group

Thursday, March 14, 2024

1:30 p.m. – 2:30p.m.

This month, we will be celebrating reading “The Unlocked Path” by Janis R. Daly.

In 1897 Philadelphia, after witnessing her aunt’s suicide, Eliza Edwards vows to find ways to help and heal. Rejecting her mother’s wishes for her society debut, Eliza enters medical college at a time when only five percent of doctors are female. With the support of a circle of women and driven by a determination to conquer curriculum demands, battle sexism, and overcome doubts, Eliza charts a new life course. Combining science and sympathy, can she triumph to heal others and herself?
