WHAT COULD BE MORE FUN AND RELEVANT TODAY…

THAN THE 1868 PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN BY VICTORIA WOODHULL TO BE THE FIRST WOMAN PRESIDENT?

Ulysses S. Grant?  Horatio Seymour? They don’t faze Victoria. Women don’t even have the vote. But Victoria has a mission to enlighten the entire population at a moment, just after the civil war, when everything seemed possible. Naked Truth, Carrie Hayes’s evocative account of political Victoria and her spiritualist sister and side-kick, Tennessee Clark, is getting excellent reviews:

“A lifelike portrait of two remarkable (and remarkably modern) women, and an immersive dive into a colorful era’s scammers, activists, and elites”
-Kirkus Reviews

Congratulations to Carrie Hayes, a new member of HNS New York Chapter.
