Pink Icon Man - Lecture Event Date(s): 03/23/2017     Time: 2:00 am - 3:00 am

Description:

This week’s speaker is Jan Cleere, who will be presenting about famous women who played a role in Arizona’s history.

Jan CleereAuthor, historian, and lecturer Jan Cleere has put together a celebration of women who helped shape Arizona history – early pioneers who were instrumental in settling and civilizing the Territory of Arizona. From artists and healers, teachers and entrepreneurs, women who plowed the land, and those who were instrumental in establishing laws for the new territory of Arizona, many early Arizona women became known for their fortitude in the face of adversity, their confrontation of extraordinary and sometimes dangerous situations, their adventuresome spirits, and their dedication to improving the lives of others. Some of these women gained a degree of celebrity while others remained relatively unknown.

Jan is the award-winning author of five books and also writes a monthly column, “Western Women,” for Tucson’s Arizona Daily Star newspaper that details the lives of some of Arizona’s early amazing women.
