According to The Herald News, the book, “Women at Work: An Oral History of Working Class Women in Fall River, Massachusetts 1920 To 1970,” will have a book signing on Saturday, June 10, from 1 to 3 p.m.

The book signing will take place at the Fall River Historical Society, 451 Rock St. in Fall River.

“Women at Work: An Oral History of Working Class Women in Fall River, Massachusetts 1920 To 1970,” contains 400 pages and has more than 200 illustrations.

The book was edited by Historical Society curators Michael Martins, Dennis Binnete, and Joyce B. Rodrigues, and tells the stories of 10 Fall River women that worked in the city’s mills.

The women interviewed to have their stories told in the book were between the ages of 85 and 100 years old and are of various nationalities.

“Their stories, while separate, are intertwined in the places they worked, where they dined and shopped, and in their experiences of that era in the city and world.”

Signing copies of the book will be Binette and Martins, along with several of the women interviewed in the book, including 101-year-old interviewee, Eva Rochefort, and 100-year-old interviewee, Horensia Ribeira.

To learn more about the project, you can visit the webpage of the society at http://lizzieborden.org.
