In the middle of the pandemic, after five years of writing and a lifetime of research, VAF member Heather Huyck’s Doing Women’s History in Public: A Handbook for Interpretation at Museums and Historic Sites is out. The book discusses the need to interpret the history of all American women, the approaches to research, preserve and interpret that history. It includes traditional historical sources—written, oral and visual AND tangible resources—landscapes, architecture, and objects. The book places special emphasis on the relationship between vernacular buildings, women, and girls.
