Mister Ron's Basement #1617
March is Women's History Month!
We are featuring an assortment of 19th Century women authors this week. While we have not featured too many stories by Rose Terry Cooke in the past, she is one of our favorite authors. Today we feature one of her most popular stories, from 1878 -- a satirical piece about a mythical island where frustrated Americans set up a different kind of society -- it's called 'Knoware.'
Time: approx thirty-seven minutes
