Story Time: Rad American Women
Aug 8, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Story Time: Author Kate Schatz and illustrator Miriam Klein Stahl present Rad American Women A – Z: Rebels, Trailblazers, and Visionaries Who Shaped Our History . . . and Our Future!
In this alphabet book, instead of “apple,” A is for Angela — as in Angela Davis, the iconic political activist. B is for Billie Jean King, who shattered the glass ceiling of sports; C is for Carol Burnett, who defied assumptions about women in comedy. And the list of great women continues: artists and abolitionists, scientists and suffragettes, rock stars and rabble-rousers, and agents of change of all kinds. American history was made by countless rad — and often radical — women. With insightful text and dramatic graphics offering a fresh and diverse array of female role models, Rad American Women author Kate Schatz and illustrator Miriam Klein Stahl remind readers of all ages that there are many places to find inspiration, and that being smart and strong and brave is rad. Join us for a presentation with the creators of one of our favorite new children’s books!
