110

110Today, February 25, 2020, would have been Millicent Fenwick’s 110th birthday. I’ve been thinking about her a lot lately not only because it is an election year which means her name appears in the news more often than usual, especially in New Jersey, but because the Republican Party has changed so much since she was elected. While I believe she would still be a Republican today, I also think she would vocalize her opinion when she disagreed with the party. What surprises me most is that Millicent Fenwick: Her Way was published more than 15 years ago and I am still getting emails from readers, most of whom have their own Fenwick stories to share. I treasure them all. For those of you in New Jersey, it looks like I may have a couple books talks in the fall. Stay tuned here for more information.

    please you must bring back this book

    in todays world the girls don’t have a clue

    the rights they enjoy today. I was a depression

    • Mary,

      Thank you so much for your lovely comment. I recently received a letter from another reader so perhaps the book is making a comeback 17 years after publication! Imagine what Millicent would say about today’s current events if she was still with us today!
