More Than a Princess
Wednesday, October 20, 12:00pm EDT

Join NWHM and author Delanda Coleman for a special Halloween themed reading of her book, More Than a Princess, with Q&A to follow.

Princess Kiana was lying in bed. ‘Life in the castle is boring!’ she said. ‘I’ve got many things, but I need something more. There’s so much out there I have yet to explore.” Follow Kiana’s magical journey as she’ll explore all the things a girl can achieve. Guided by her fairy godmother, Kiana will discover that life is more than pretty things and fancy castles.

Delanda and Terrence Coleman are the authors of this charming tale, aiming to show girls around the world all they can achieve in the areas of science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM). Through the lens of an African American princess, they offer the reader a rhyming kids’ book that showcases careers for girls in a modern way.

A Vote For Susanna: The First Woman Mayor
Wednesday, November 10, 12:00pm EDT

Join author Karen M. Greenwald for a live reading with Q&A of her book, A Vote For Susanna: The First Woman Mayor, in observance of Election Day.

In 1887 the state of Kansas gave women the right to vote in municipal elections. But some men in the city of Argonia, Kansas didn’t think women should have a say in choosing their next mayor, so they put a woman on the ballot—as a joke. That woman was Susanna Salter—and soon the men would find the joke was on them! Narrated by a grandmother who remembered what happened on that election day, this is the true story of a woman who stood up for her right to vote and accomplished so much more.
