Local Author Wins a Bloomer!

Each year the Amelia Bloomer Project chooses the top appealing feminist books for young readers, ages birth through 18. And this year it features one of our local authors (and a former librarian to boot) Carole Dagg for her wonderful book The Year We Were Famous, which is based on the true story of her ancestors walking across America!  

In 1896, Clara and her suffragist mother accept a challenge to walk across the United States to win $10,000 and save their family farm. Their endurance and fortitude change perceptions of women’s abilities and fashion.
