The Lydia Maria Child Society (LMCS) promotes the awareness and appreciation of Child’s life and works and facilitates the exchange of ideas, information, research, and pedagogies related to Child and her expansive vision for social equality. In carrying forward Child’s legacy, our Society supports the pursuit of social justice and inclusive excellence through education, academic scholarship, creative projects, and social action. The LMCS is an affiliated member of the American Literature Association (ALA) and the Society for the Study of American Women Writers (SSAWW).
