A book about some of the prominent and capable women who have called Martha's Vineyard home: Mindy Todd talks with historian Thomas Dresser about his latest book, Women of Martha’s Vineyard on The Point. Biographies in the book include Katharine Cornell, Helen Manning, Dorothy West, Emily Post, Doris Pope Jackson and many more. The book describes life on the Vineyard through the eyes of these twentieth century women who contributed so much to the community.

Mindy Todd is the host and producer of The Point on WCAI which examines critical issues for Cape Cod and the Islands. She brings more than 30 years of experience in radio and television to WCAI. After starting her broadcasting career as a midday DJ at WARE in Ware, Massachusetts, she quickly advanced to host of the morning drive show, which in 1981, made her one of the few women in broadcasting to anchor her own morning show. Her career has covered nearly all aspects of broadcasting. She has been a radio disc jockey, a traffic reporter, a television news anchor and reporter, a program director, talk show host, and even a ski reporter. Her television work brought her to White River Junction, VT, Portland, ME, Indianapolis, IN and Nashville, TN. Mindy also worked at radio stations in West Palm Beach, FL, Hartford, CT, Boston, MA and Lebanon, NH. She has received numerous awards, most recently her 5th National PRNDI (Public Radio News Directors Incorporated) award for best Call-in program and best Interview.
