St. Louis has a long history of ordinary men and women taking extraordinary steps to fight for equal rights. The newest release from Missouri History Museum Press (available now!) opens up their story to middle-grade readers. Saturday's event is kids' chance to hear authors Amanda E. Doyle and Melanie A. Adams read selections from the book and ask them questions. Tuesday's event is for parents, grandparents, teachers, and anyone else who's interested in discovering how Doyle and Adams shaped St. Louis's complex civil rights history into an easy-to-understand resource for children in our region and beyond. Books will be available for purchase and signing by the authors.
