Thursday, December 07, 2017 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Penny Building, University of Lethbridge, 324 5 Street South

Celebrate the publication of Kristine Alexander's new book, "Guiding Modern Girls." Alexander looks at the fascinating history of the Girl Guide movement that sought to maintain social stability in England, Canada, and India during the 1920s and 1930s. She reveals the ways in which girls and young women understood, reworked, and sometimes challenged the expectations placed on them by the world’s largest voluntary organization for girls.
