Our History is Our Strength: National Women's History Alliance

Speaker: Rebecca Rosenberg

Women's History Alliance Speaking Events

Champagne geek, lavender farmer and triple-gold award-winning author, Rebecca Rosenberg gives a riveting visual presentation of the three women who revolutionized champagne-making from 1800 to 1950, Veuves (widows) Clicquot, Pommery and Bollinger.

Through colorful visuals and engaging stories, Rebecca's speaking events tell how these women battled pandemics, mental illness, sexist laws against women owning businesses, terrible wars, enemy occupation, and even Napoleon Bonaparte to forge their champagne empires. They risked imprisonment and even death, while breaking all the rules to make champagne and founding the largest champagne houses of today.

The first in the series, Champagne Widows, Rebecca's novel about Veuve Clicquot, garnered an Historical Novel Society Editor's Choice Award in 2022.

Book Rebecca Rosenberg at NWHA to speak to your group about historical women from the Gold Rush to Champagne Makers.

I am thrilled to be part of a new platform that helps authors and book clubs connect through speaking events.

Novel Network makes it easy to check my availability and schedule a Zoom or in-person discussion for your book club!

I love to meet with groups to share stories about the glorious women I research and write about, my life as a writer, upcoming projects and other topics.

Fun, visual presentation of the remarkable twenty-year-old who came west for a gold mine, found herself abandoned and pregnant and working the mine alone. She falls in love with a much older (married) prospector who strikes the biggest silver vein in history, and becomes a U.S. Senator. The two become the richest and most scandalous couple in the country … until the silver crash of 1893.
