The Newark Public Library celebrated Women's History Month with a special performance of "An Anti-Suffrage Monologue," presented by Michele LaRue of The East Lynne Company. "Monologue" marked the 150th anniversary of the 1848 Seneca Falls Women's Rights Convention, which is regarded as the first modern conference centering solidly on the rights of women.

The March 21 program also formally opened EDITIONS, an exhibition of eighty-six graphic works by forty-two New Jersey women artists. It will be on view on the Main Library's third-floor gallery until May 29; it salutes the accomplishments of a group of contemporary women artists who are united under the concept which commenced with an artists' book in 1989.

The exhibition features EDITION VI, VII, and VIII, with each of the three books displaying highly varied and individual interpretations of a broadly based theme for today's world. It was curated by William J. Dane, the Library's Keeper of Prints.
