Call us crazy, but Zona Gale seems like a woman of some interest. Holder of a master’s degree in literature, she was the first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for drama (in 1921) — and wrote six more plays, 11 novels and a book of poetry. Her private life was full of the progressivism that burned bright in her time: she supported the La Follettes, the National Women’s Party, the Wisconsin Equal Rights Law and the Lucy Stone League. But word of her accomplishments has not moved far out of her home state of Wisconsin. Catch up by attending the Endangered Species Project’s staged reading of her Pulitzer-winning feminist comedy “Miss Lulu Bett.” 7 p.m. June 11 in the Fremont neighborhood; details here.
