From Seneca Falls to Philadelphia

Journey to Philadelphia, artist's book by Lesley Mitchell

Fourth of July 1876 & the Women of the Centennial 

As part of the Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts in 2013, the Athenaeum

collaborated with the Philadelphia Center for the Book to produce an exhibition which combines select items from the Curry/Sherk Centennial Collection with the work of contemporary book artists.

My book Journey to Philadelphia is a fictional account of a young woman's experiences at the Centennial Exhibit and at Independence Hall on July 4 when the Declaration of the Rights of Women was presented publicly.
