On “Squeaky Little Wheels” (December 2016)

squeakytruckIn December, Liz Phipps Soeiro followed up her Horn Book Magazine Field Notes article “Loud in the Library: Creating Social Activists at School” with the Family Reading blog post “Squeaky Little Wheels,” about encouraging critical thinking and activism at home.

This amazing school librarian, mom, and Family Reading contributor was just named a “Mover & Shaker” by Library Journal, part of their annual list (check the complete list for some real inspiration).

And if you’re the type of person, like us, who tends to wear her heart — and her political leanings — on her sleeve, you can support Libraries Without Borders by buying one of these “Read Write Resist” t-shirts, designed by… Liz. #LibrariansWithSuperpowersreadwriteresiss
