Morrill Memorial Library's Turn the Page Book Group, in partnership with Haley Booksellers, is proud to host debut New England novelist, Janis Robinson Daly, on Wednesday, November 16 at 10:00 am in-person.

ABOUT THE BOOK:  In "The Unlocked Path", "meet a “New Woman” of the early 20th century: educated, career-minded, independent Eliza Pearson Edwards. In 1897 Philadelphia, after witnessing her aunt's suicide, Eliza rejects her mother’s wishes for a society debut, and enters medical college. With the support of a circle of women and determined to conquer curriculum demands, battle sexism, and overcome doubts, Eliza charts a new life course."

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Janis states, "after a career in sales and marketing and raising two boys active in sports, right through the college level, I asked the age-old question, Now what? I didn’t spend long looking for my answer. I found it within the return hits from a genealogy search on my great-great-grandfather, William S. Peirce, Esquire. From FamousAmericans.net: He took an active part in founding the Woman’s Medical College in Philadelphia".

"Inspired by that line, more research ensued, and a story and characters formed. The early graduates of the Woman’s Medical College have remained in the shadows. Their stories needed to be told. With a love of history, I balanced a need for authenticity and details with a flair to create emotional connections to fictional characters".

Books will be available for purchase and signing at the event, courtesy of Haley Booksellers.
