Free
Main Point Books is proud to host Janice Nimura, author of “The Doctors Blackwell: How Two Pioneering Sisters Brought Women to Medicine and Medicine to Women.” Co-hosted by the Radnor Library, Janice will be discussing the lives and legacies of sisters Elizabeth and Emily Blackwell.

“A riveting dual biography of America’s first female physicians. . . .

Deftly weav[es] together a dramatic true story that reads like a work of historical
fiction. . . . Maintaining narrative momentum, Nimura packs the text with evocative, memorable vignettes. . . . Peppered with appearances from Abraham Lincoln, Florence Nightingale, Susan B. Anthony, and others, the text is a vibrant landscape that affirms the prominent place of the Blackwell sisters in medical history. . ..
A compellingly portrayed and vividly realized biography of triumph and trailblazing.”

Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Nimura brings [the Blackwells’] world vividly to life in this portrait of the sisters and their professional partnership. . . . With the fiercely intelligent, prickly sisters at the center, Nimura’s engrossing and enlightening group biography is highly recommended.”
Booklist, starred review

“A captivating biography. . . . In recounting the lives of two ambitious figures
who opened doors for many who came after them, Nimura casts
a thoughtful and revelatory new light onto women’s and medical history.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review
