Dear Friend,

Thanks to your past interest, I've had the honor of presenting several programs about Fascinating Women History Forgot.  

I am excited to share my newest project with you. 

It's a coloring book featuring founding mothers, abolitionists, suffragists, politicians, and more.  
Here is the title page.

Why is this coloring book different?

  • It's not "just" a coloring book! 
    • Each coloring page will have a short bio, a fascinating fact and a quote by the woman.  The book will include resources for more reading (I'm a librarian after all!) and places where these women are honored. 
    • So, it's a great educational resource in addition to being fun. 
  • It's inclusive and diverse, just like the women in the book. 
    • Many artists are participating.  If you or a friend like to draw, please contact me here---we  have a few spots left!
    • Many artists means many styles, which also adds to the fun.

Here's an excerpt of one entry: 

"When I die... I don't want to be remembered as the first black woman who went to Congress and I don't even want to be remembered as the first woman who happened to be black to make a bid for the presidency.  I want to be remembered as a woman who fought for change in the twentieth century. That's what I want." -- Shirley Chisholm, art by Jill Obrig


To bring these black and white images to full color, I invite you to participate in my  Kickstarter Campaign, which ends on August 31.  We have about 50 donors so far and are over 60% of our financial goal.

People we don't know are blogging in support and forwarding to friends, community groups, girl scout troops and grandkids. 

So, whether you want to share this message, contribute a little money, design a drawing, or order the completed book, your support is much appreciated!

"I desire you would remember the  ladies... If particular care and attention is not paid to the ladies, we are determined to foment a rebellion and will not hold ourselves bound by any Laws in which we have no voice or Representation."
Abigail Adams to John Adams, March 31, 1776
