Virtual Author Visit: Sarah PragerTuesday June 30, 2020
6:30 PM until 8:30 PM
Author and former Wallingford resident Sarah Prager will share incredible true stories from her new middle grade book "Rainbow Revolutionaries: 50 LGBTQ+ People Who Made History."
This ground-breaking book for readers ages 8-12 comes out May 26 and is a selection of the Junior Library Guild. Celebrate Pride Month with Wallingford Public Library where Sarah will discuss and read from this gorgeous book. This event is friendly to middleschoolers, teens, and adults.
Take a journey through the lives of fifty revolutionary queer figures who made history in this beautifully illustrated biography collection. Did you ever wonder who invented the computer? Or who advised Martin Luther King Jr. on his nonviolent activism? Author Sarah Prager and illustrator Sarah Papworth bring to life the vibrant histories of fifty pioneering LGBTQ+ people our history books forgot to mention. Delve into the lives of Wen of Han, a Chinese emperor who loved his boyfriend as much as his people; Martine Rothblatt, a trans woman who’s helping engineer the robots of tomorrow, and so many more! From athletes (Billie Jean King) to doctors (Magnus Hirschfeld) and activists (Marsha P. Johnson) to painters (Frida Kahlo), LGBTQ+ people have made their mark on every century of human existence. This book is a celebration of the many ways these hidden heroes have made a difference and will inspire young readers to make a difference, too.
