Mighty Girl Story:
Watch Right Now! Georgina Goodlander
Stories, both real and imagined, show what girls can do. The stories of women’s lives, and the choices they made, encourage girls to think larger and bolder, and give boys and men a fuller understanding of the female experience.

~National Women’s History Project

“I think if you’re interested in working with art and working in museums, it’s just kind of getting out there and experiencing as many of them as you possibly can. I’ve always been fascinated with museums. Whenever I go to a new place, new country, new city, I always check out at least one museum.” ~ Georgina

Staff Pick – El Deafo

El Deafo

A poignant graphic tale based on the creator’s own experiences with hearing loss follows the adventures of young Cece, who develops “superpowers” to manage the challenges of making friends while wearing a bulky hearing aid that sometimes lets her hear things she shouldn’t. 2015 Newbery Medal Honor Book

Imagine suddenly no longer being able to hear the sounds of anything around you. And then, through the magic of the Phonic Ear (hearing aid), sound reappears, but nothing sounds the same. In her graphic memoir, Cece Bell shares the story of her childhood through El Deafo – a superhero with super hearing powers! She captures both the humorous and difficult parts of growing up with a hearing loss – the challenges of lipreading, the unexpected private conversations heard when the teacher forgets to turn off the microphone outside of the classroom, the complexities of making friends, and so much more – as well as the trials and tribulations that every child goes through.
Deaf or not, every child will find some part of Bell’s experience that they can relate to. This book is a must-read.
