Strong Women of the 20th Century Program at Two Libraries

Writer and outdoorswoman Tessa Hulls will present She Traveled Solo: Strong Women in the Early 20th Century at two libraries in December.

After embarking on a 5,000-mile solo bicycle ride from southern California to Maine, Hulls began researching other women who made solo treks in different ways — women who defied expectations and embarked on unprecedented journeys as explorers, mountaineers, and even as a circus performer.

In this Humanities Washington Speakers Bureau program, Hulls delves into the lives of intrepid female adventurers, demonstrating why female role models are vital in affecting social change.

She will speak at:

  • Wenatchee Public Library on Dec.18 at 6:30 p.m.
  • Peshastin Public Library on Dec.19 at 6:30 p.m.

Hulls is a multidisciplinary artist, writer and outdoorswoman who focuses on women’s stories. Her writing has appeared in the Washington Post and Atlas Obscura’s Kickass Women series.
