March is for Role Models

March is Women’s History Month, tomorrow is International Women’s Day, and we’d like to celebrate all of the incredibly talented and dedicated women who have worked with us at BtB to empower students.

Our mission is to engage students in reading and writing because literacy and literature open up worlds parallel to and vastly different from our own. Literature is both a doorway to the wider world and a window to the soul; in stepping out to explore, or looking in to reflect, it is invaluable for young people in the formation of identity.

We all need great role models, especially the young girls with whom we work, and we are proud to bring real, successful, published authors into classrooms to inspire students. So, starting tomorrow and throughout the month of March, we’ll be running a series on this blog featuring our female authors. Be sure to check back often for great books by these amazing women!
