Congratulations 2021 Jane Addams Children’s Book Award recipients!
Have you watched the MARJORY SAVES THE EVERGLADES Read Aloud yet? I loved being in the wetlands near my home & sharing the story of Marjory Stoneman Douglas, a hidden figure in #STEM history.

As a former indie bookseller, I’ve been to the NEIBA conference & seen their dedication to getting true stories in the hands of #yalit readers. It’s why I’m honored 2B at this yr’s event as an author, alongside @RWallaceBooks, sharing RACE AGAINST TIME. #NewReleases #CivilRights
Imagine how many lives would NOT be lost if the current President--the #1 threat to national security & democracy--had been impeached by the Congress the 1st time? Now there’s a 2nd chance for the Senate to do the right thing & have tyrannical rule be history & be accountable.
There's still time to register!

As you teach about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. ahead of his birthday, acknowledge the link between the racism he resisted and the violence we witnessed at the Capitol. These resources will help foster related discussions within the context of U.S. history.
Essential classroom tools to stress the connection between white mob violence today & throughout US history. Grounded in hate & racism, it’s the same violence Dr. King faced & resisted, as well as so many people you don't know about; their stories omitted from history books.
Denied their right 2 vote in 1965, 105 Black teachers from Selma, AL risked their lives by peacefully marching 2 the courthouse 4 their right to vote. They helped pass the Voting Rights Act, yet kids have never heard of these heroes of democracy--until now.
Incitement of insurrection is an impeachable offense.
No one contests that.
Either we uphold our oath to protect the constitution, or we do not.
Either we safeguard our democracy, or we do not.
It’s really that simple. Trump must be impeached. Now.
I know where I stand.
Never heard of Marjory Stoneman Douglas? It's why I wrote MARJORY SAVES THE EVERGLADES. 100yrs ago, she helped make the Everglades a nat’l park. Then this hidden figure in #STEM history stopped the world’s largest airport from being built there.

Mob violence occurs in minutes but doesn’t get planned overnight. With RACE AGAINST TIME, it is our hope that knowing the historical context of mob violence, how it builds, & ways people have stood up to defeat it, can lead to action, healing, & positive change today.
ECSTATIC to present the COVER REVEAL of MARJORY SAVES
THE EVERGLADES, publishing SEPT 22! A suffragist not a scientist, when Marjory saw the Everglades disappearing, she took action to protect it until age 108! TY #TeamMarjory 4 this bk! #kidlit #STEM #BeTheChange #biography 👒🐊
