Kate Schatz and Miriam Klein Stahl: Rad Women Worldwide

Like she's scouting a feminist Miss Universe, Kate Schatz scans the globe for Rad Women Worldwide: Artists and Athletes, Pirates and Punks, and Other Revolutionaries Who Shaped History. The forty women she profiles are as diverse as the nations they represent, from the more well-known, like Malala Yousafzai and Frida Kahlo, to the more unsung, like Indian astronaut Kalpana Chawla and Filipino doctor Fe del Mundo. Bolstered by Miriam Klein Stahl's vivid illustrations, Schatz's mini-bios highlight the female icons who have often been consigned to the shadows. The pantheon spans ages, going back 4,300 years to include Enheduanna, the Mesopotamian priestess who is the world's oldest known author, right alongside Bastardilla, the modern-day Colombian street artist. Join the author and illustrator for an equally wide-ranging discussion at this book launch.
