Women’s History Month

bmmiller 203x300 Womens History MonthIt’s Women’s History Month and thus the Kidlit Celebrates Women’s History Month blog is back. I’ll be over there later this month to write about our beloved Bertha; but go over there now to see accounts of the likes of Emily Brontë, Julia Morgan, and Temple Grandin.

On a related note, I’ve been enjoying my commute listening to the audiobook rendition of Ellen Klages’ The Green Glass Sea, a novel about two girls living at WWII Los Alamos that won the Scott O’Dell Award in 2007. The narrator makes main-girl Dewey sound a bit too little-girly, but the kids’-eye view of the development of “the Gadget” remains wonderful as does the depiction, in Dewey, of a young scientific mind. If there’s ever a movie, that actress who plays Debbie on the U.S. version of Shameless should get the part.
