Meet Erma Bombeck – History Speakers Bureau

Loading Events

Our History Speakers Bureau program brings engaging living history presentations to libraries, schools, and other organizations throughout Colorado. Join us and Cornerstone Community Churc as we meet Erma Bombeck.

Presented by Susan Marie Frontczak: Erma Bombeck captured with poignancy and humor the daily life of a new American phenomenon: the suburban housewife. Believing you had to be able to laugh at life to get through it, she captured the essence of the housewife’s daily struggles in her column “At Wit’s End” three days a week, eventually appearing in 900 newspapers across the country and in books such as I Lost Everything in the Post-Natal Depression and The Grass is Always Greener Over the Septic Tank. She brought to American awareness the life of women whose lives otherwise felt invisible and taken for granted. She let women across America know: You are not alone.
