Rad American Women A - Z: Rebels, Trailblazers, and Visionaries Who Shaped Our History . . . and Our Future! @ Central

June 6, 2015 - 11:00am-11:50am (ended)

Presented by City Lights Publishers and the Berkeley Public Library In partnership with Bay Area Book Festival.

Author Kate Schatz and book illustrator Miriam Klein Stahl.

"This is not a book. This is a guest list for a party of my heroes,” raved Daniel Handler, aka Lemony Snicket. Like all A-Z books, this one illustrates the alphabet — but instead of "A is for 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; D is for Dolores Huerta, who organized farmworkers.

Author Kate Schatz and illustrator Miriam Klein Stahl celebrate all these heroes with a dazzling visual presentation — and silk screenings! Bring your own t-shirt, onesie, or tea towel with you to have a vibrant rad woman silkscreened on it!
