Linda McCann presents Rosie the Riveter

Tuesday, October 24, 2023

Rosie the Riveter was a name used to encourage women to go to work during WWII. They needed to take the place of the men who were fighting the war. Iowa had 70 businesses that used women to meet production of military needs. Linda Betsinger McCann, author, was able to speak with 35 women who had worked as Rosie's. Some worked in Iowa and others went to the West Coast. She shares their experiences when she speaks. Linda will have copies of all her books for sale for $20 and only cash or checks are accepted. 

Linda Betsinger McCann is the author of non-fiction Iowa history; including Prisoners of War in Iowa; Prohibition in Iowa; several books about the Civilian Conservation Corps in different areas of Iowa; and The Vanished Towns of the Cedar Valley series.
