Join me at Politics and Prose in Washington, D.C. with Emily Cain, EMILY's List Executive Director to discuss my book for children & teens - Leading the Way: Women in Power.
Thursday, November 14, 2019 - 7 p.m.
Women interested in politics, or even voting rights, have been dismissed and scoffed at throughout American history. Meet many of the brave women who wouldn’t be stopped—like Shirley Chisholm, the first Black woman elected to Congress; Soledad Chávez Chacón, the second woman and first Latina to serve as governor; and Patsy Takemoto Mink, who coauthored the Title IX Amendment while she was the first woman of color and Asian American in Congress. Beautifully illustrated and clearly written, this introduction to trailblazers concludes with a guide to inspire young readers to take action themselves. Ages 10 and up.
This event is free to attend with no reservation required.
