Join Southern Oregon Historical Society’s archivist Jan Wright to explore the lives of Mattie Sisley, Sadie Hudson, and Ida Griner who lived in Jackson County from the 1880s to the 1920s and went astray from societal norms.

Wright will talk about the contributing factors of the girls’ delinquency and attempted reforms to their behavior through case studies and a collection of letters.

This event is part of the 2023 Summer Reading Program. The 2023 theme is “Find Your Voice,” sponsored by the State Library of Oregon. For more information about events and activities during the Summer Reading Program, visit
