Fort Bend County Libraries’ Sugar Land Branch Library will present a special program, “HERstory in HIStory: A Chat About Remarkable Women and Their Stories,” on Saturday, May 11th, from 2 to 4 pm, in the Meeting Room of the library, located at 550 Eldridge.

Women throughout history have played significant – and sometimes unheralded – roles in shaping the worlds around them. Now, more than ever, the stories of these remarkable women are being told on the big and small screens, in print and online.

Metcalfe-Chenail is a Canadian-born writer who specializes in telling hidden histories, including those of female ferry pilots in World War II, bush pilots, and balloonatics.
