Byrd's Books

In the summer of 1969, women from across the country sent in applications to Yale University for the first time. The landmark decision was a huge step forward for women’s equality in education. Or was it? Find out as Bethel’s Byrd’s Books welcomes award-winning historian and expert in higher education, Anne Gardiner Perkins, to discuss her new - and first - book, Yale Needs Women: How the First Group of Girls Rewrote the Rules of an Ivy League Giant. The winner of a 2020 CT Book Award for Nonfiction, the book was called a “must-read” by Treasury Secretary, Janet Yellen, who received her PhD at Yale in 1971. Reservations requested.
