Children's Book Week: Marlene Targ Brill in Chicago
Marlene Targ Brill is an award-winning author of over 70 books for readers of all ages. She especially seeks to write girls and women into history and tell stories about children and their accomplishments. Come hear her share stories about how her two latest books, Picture Girl and Dolores Huerta Stands Strong: The Woman Who Demanded Justice, came to be.
Picture Girl is a family story -- an immigration story about a family escaping religious persecution for being Jewish -- and the story of a young girl who perseveres to reach her dream of becoming an artist.
