Join us on Monday at 6:30 at the Museum of the City of New York for the Clara Lemlich Awards, always my favorite night of the year. Women in their 80’s 90’s and 100’s are honored for lifetime activism.
Last night around 10 I called back Bea
to remind her to come to the awards ceremony
she won a few years ago for being a scientist
not many women scientists then
Bea still works a few days
I happen to be home is what she said
finishing a new book working at Hunter College doesn’t
drive any more one of her friends can drive her car
they’d eaten an Italian meal last night I’m perfectly
fine said Bea it’s just the walking I made a hair
appointment for Monday she said. I don’t need
the car for that. The subway’s fine.
