The University Woman's Club is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year. The club's historian, Linda Haac, will talk about how the club came to be founded, how it has changed with women's evolving roles in our society and how the club has been part of The University of North Carolina and now includes the wider community, along with what the future holds. Come learn how an influential women's organization responded to social change since its inception in the days of hats, white gloves, and tea parties.

Linda Haac holds a Master's degree from the Department of Communication Studies at UNC with teaching experience at both Duke and the University of NC at Chapel Hill. She has been a writer and correspondent for the Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, and Newsweek. She is currently the Dance Critic for The News and Observer in Raleigh, NC, a senior partner and founding member for a management publications/communications consulting firm in the Triangle and co-founder of a lifestyle/social-networking internet site called Living the Sweet Life.
