Hi everybody,

My friend Jessica Sewell -- a professor who works on architectural history and culture -- is reading tonight at Bluestockings, from her new book "Women and the Everyday City." That's an examination of changing urban spaces and changing gender roles in turn-of-the-century San Francisco.

From the Amazon review: Focusing on women's everyday use of streetcars, shops, restaurants, and theaters, Sewell reveals the impact of women on these public places-what women did there, which women went there, and how these places were changed in response to women's presence.


See you there!
