Rad Women


One of the best things about working at a school is that your kids are close to being a literal captive audience. That means that once a week, middle school students come to the library for what I like to call, “Ms. Serrano’s feminist-socialist hour.”  This month I am reading them biographies from Kate Shatz and Miriam Klien Stahl’s Rad American Women A-Z.


A student picks a letter and the beginning of their library time and while they are reading and browsing I put together a couple of book talks using the biography from A-Z and supplementary books that I find around the library.  I’m hoping that someone picks the letter S so I can talk about my girl, Sonia Sotomayor!
