VASHTI HARRISON at Books Inc. Alameda

Vashti Harrison author photo and Little Dreamers cover image

New York Times-bestselling author & illustrator Vashti Harrison joins us at Books Inc. in Alameda in celebration of her charming new work of non-fiction for kids, Little Dreamers: Visionary Women Around the World. (Ages 8+)

The instant New York Times bestseller! 
From the author of Little Leaders: Bold Women in Black History comes the highly anticipated follow-up, a beautifully illustrated collectible detailing the lives of women creators around the world.

Featuring the true stories of 35 women creators, ranging from writers to inventors, artists to scientists, Little Dreamers: Visionary Women Around the World inspires as it educates. Readers will meet trailblazing women like Mary Blair, an American modernist painter who had a major influence on how color was used in early animated films, actor/inventor Hedy Lamarr, environmental activist Wangari Maathai, architect Zaha Hadid, filmmaker Maya Deren, and physicist Chien-Shiung Wu. Some names are known, some are not, but all of the women had a lasting effect on the fields they worked in.

The charming, information-filled full-color spreads show the Dreamers as both accessible and aspirational so readers know they, too, can grow up to do something amazing.
