Champions of Change: Author and Illustrator Book Signing

  • The King's English 1511 South 1500 East Salt Lake City (map)

Authors Naomi Watkins and Katherine Kitterman, along with illustrator Brooke Smart will present and sign their new children's nonfiction book, Champions of Change.

In fighting to pass the 19th Amendment, brave suffragists like Susan B. Anthony and Emmeline B. Wells fought to end laws and take down barriers that prevented them from voting. Champions of Change introduces young readers not only to Anthony and Wells, but also to a diverse group of firsts and freedom-fighters in America’s fight for equality, such as: Zitkala-Sa, co-founder of the National Council of American Indians, Martha Hughes Cannon, America’s first female state senator, Hannah Kaaepa, an advocate for Hawaiian women’s rights, Barbara Toomer, who was jailed 35 times for protests that led to the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the women of the Kanab Town Council, one of the first all-female city councils in the country.
