Regional gatherings recap: February 2016

jawsnyc_roosevelthouseJAWS NYC: JAWdesses met at the Roosevelt House for an intimate tour led by Deborah Gardner. She regaled attendees with accounts of the historic events that took place at the house, with an emphasis on Eleanor Roosevelt’s life and achievements, and also led the group through the exhibit on the suffrage movement. The show is open to the public through April 2.

JAWS Iowa: The group had its first meeting on Feb. 11. All but one of the attendees were from the same paper, but they all seemed interested in having a group outside of work where they could discuss different topics and find resources on different questions. Everyone seemed enthusiastic about meeting regularly and suggested other papers to reach out to for future events.
