Edith Gelles Book Event, Abigail & John: Portrait of a Marriage


Abigail and John were a uniquely compatible duo, and in their remarkable union we can see the strength of a people determined to achieve full independence in the face of daunting odds. Yet while much has been written about each as an individual, "Abigail and John" provides, for the first time, the captivating story of their dedication and sacrifice that helped usher in the founding of our country, a time that fascinates us still. Edith B. Gelles, Ph.D., holds degrees from Cornell, Yale, and the University of California-Irvine. She has taught at several universities, most recently at Stanford, and is currently a Senior Scholar at Stanford's Michelle R. Clayman Institute for Gender Research.
