An occasional series in which writers speak for themselves.
A longtime journalist and current deputy director of events at the Library of Congress, Rebecca Boggs Roberts is also the author of multiple books, including Suffragists in Washington, DC: The 1913 Parade and the Fight for the Vote and The Suffragist Playbook: Your Guide to Changing the World. Her new work is Untold Power: The Fascinating Rise and Complex Legacy of First Lady Edith Wilson, which the Wall Street Journal calls “a fast-moving, sure-footed biography” and “a delightful read.” Roberts discussed Untold Power with Stephen Usery during a two-part interview in April.
