Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This volume includes Clare Coss's play Lillian Wald: At Home on Henry Street, which is closely based on Wald's writings and actual events in her life as well as speeches, letters, and leaflets by Wald herself--"a carefully balanced selection, highlighting Wald's antiwar activities and her deep concern for the rights of labor"--Annette T. Rubinstein, Science and Society.

The one-character play conveys the personal moments that made Wald's public contributions a lasting mandate for social change. Coss's introduction and notes on the documents place them and the events of the play in the context of the times and of Wald's life and work.
