Wood County Museum to host best-selling author


The Wood County Museum will host a meet-and-greet and book signing event with best-selling author Kate Moore (of the book “Radium Girls”) on June 15 at 2 p.m. This will be a free event for the community.

Moore will present on her latest book “The Woman They Could Not Silence,” about a woman’s experiences in asylums in the 1800s.

The program will be held right outside the Wood County Museum’s Lunatic Asylum and a special temporary exhibit from the National Library of Medicine, The Yellow Wallpaper, will be on display as well.

Moore will also be doing a book signing while at the museum. Books will be available for sale in the gift shop.

“The Woman They Could Not Silence” is a triumphant tale of resilience, challenging the status quo, and the enduring power of the human spirit. Moore’s meticulous research and rich historical detail bring Elizabeth Packard’s story to life, painting a vivid portrait of a woman who defied society’s expectations and paved the way for future generations.

The meet-and-greet event is free to the public but reservations are appreciated. The museum will be open for tours with regular admission.
