“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 Stahl celebrate all these heroes with a dazzling visual presentation — and silkscreenings! Bring your own t-shirt, onesie, or tea towel with you to have a vibrant rad woman silkscreened on it!
