I am excited to share that She Spoke: 14 Women Who Raised Their Voices and Changed the World won Best 2019 Anthology of Women for Young Readers in the Bookstagram Choice Awards! (I know this seems like a very specific category, but there have been many wonderful anthologies of women published this year, so it’s a real honor!)
Here’s what the judges had to say about She Spoke:
“She Spoke is a unique anthology of trailblazing women that pairs their stories with their voices. (Remember those books with buttons on the side that play nursery rhymes or farm animal sounds? Like that, but WAY better.) To be precise, the book includes buttons that play actual clips of an inspiring speech by each woman in her own voice! She Spoke features 14 women who raised their voices to make change in the world, and it’s a perfect mix – well-known women like Malala or Jane Goodall, but also lesser-known but equally important women like Dr. Joanne Liu, Suzan Shown Harjo, and Leymah Gbowee.
The concept is brilliant and like nothing I’ve ever seen – to hear these incredible women’s voices saying their iconic words is truly magical. Young readers will be begging to read (and listen to!) this one again and again.”
