Story time: Suki Boynton presents Sea Girl: Feminist Folktales From Around the World
Illustrator and designer Suki Boynton comes to Greenlight for a very special heroine-empowerment, reading and drawing story time! Today’s story hour celebrates the release of Sea Girl, the third volume in Feminist Press’s four-volume reissue of classic feminist children's tales. The folktales collected in Sea Girl upend any notion that women are doomed to be sentimental, meek, or submissive. In these classic tales, heroines unflinchingly wade monstrous rivers, escape ogres' nests, and outsmart desperate sharks and hungry tigers. And while defending their families and villages, they always determine their own fate. Join Suki for a special feminist story time! Ages 3 to 12.
