Lizzie Ehrenhalt will discuss Precious and Adored, her new book about a long-term romance between two women at the turn of the 20th century. In 1890, Rose Cleveland, a sister of President Grover Cleveland, fell in love with Evangeline Marrs Simpson, who later married the first Episcopal bishop of Minnesota, and wrote to her for 19 years. The book includes annotated transcriptions of their letters, some of which were hidden from the public in the 1970s. Sponsored by Friends of the Plymouth Library.
