Emily Arnold McCully EventJoin us on Monday, November 12th at 4:00 p.m. to learn about 21 women who changed the way we think.  Caldecott medalist Emily Arnold McCully will be reading from and discussing her book She Did It!

Prepare to discover new heroes among these twenty-one women who challenged the status quo, championed others, and made their voices heard. From Jane Addams to Alice Waters, from groundbreaking artists and social justice advocates to scientific pioneers and business innovators, a strong thread of trailblazing women runs through American history. Written in compelling, accessible prose and vividly illustrated by Caldecott Medalist Emily Arnold McCully, this collection of inspiring and expertly researched profiles charts the bold paths these women forged in the twentieth century.

Emily Arnold McCully was born left-handed in Galesburg, Illinois. She has written and illustrated numerous books for children and young adults, including Mirette on the High Wire, for which she received the Caldecott Medal. Emily is also the author of A Promising Life: Coming of Age with America and Ida M. Tarbell: The Woman Who Challenged Big Business-and Won! (a finalist for the YALSA Best Nonfiction Book of the Year). She has two grown sons, one grandson, and lives in New York City and Columbia County, New York, where she grows flowers and vegetables.
