Out this Tuesday...who’s excited?
We initially showed you this book last November right here on this page. This post is just a friendly reminder to let you know it publishes this Tuesday and we can’t wait!
Shaking Things Up introduces fourteen revolutionary young women—each paired with a noteworthy female artist—to the next generation of activists and trail-blazers in history. That, among several other things makes this the ultimate #girlpower book to read in 2018. The temporary pre-order link is in my bio if you wanted to get a jump start and have it delivered to your home by Tuesday!
In this book, you will find Mary Anning, Ruby Bridges, the brave six-year-old who helped end segregation in the South. And Maya Lin, who at twenty-one won a competition to create a war memorial, and then had to appear before Congress to defend her right to create.
And those are just a few of the young women included in this book. Readers will also hear about Molly Williams, Annette Kellerman, Nellie Bly, Pura Belprè, Frida Kahlo, Jacqueline and Eileen Nearne, Frances Moore Lappè, Mae Jemison, Angela Zhang, and Malala Yousafzai—all whose stories will enthrall and inspire. This book was written, illustrated, edited, and designed by women and includes an author’s note, a timeline, and additional resources.
