Jeannette Rankin

America's First Congresswoman

Part of my Groundbreaker Series: Short biographies about extraordinary people doing extraordinary things ...

In 1916, Jeannette Rankin made history when she became the first woman elected to Congress, a full 100 years before Hillary Clinton made her historic run for president. Rankin was a groundbreaking politician, a leading suffragette, a leader in fighting for women's rights and, into her 90s, an outspoken anti-war activist fighting against the Vietnam War. She never gave in - and she never gave up. She was a #metoo leader a century ahead of her time. 

This inspiring biography for middle-grade readers, with more than 60 historic photographs, is available at Amazon and IngramSpark.

From Child Prodigy to Hero, the Violinist who Saved Jewish Misicians from the Holocaust.

Part of my Groundbreaker Series: Short biographies about extraordinary people doing extraordinary things ...
 
Bronislaw Huberman was a child prodigy performing before kings and queens.
 
As a young man, he became one of the greatest violinists in the world, playing before adoring fans across Europe and the United States. But he also would become an outspoken advocate for human rights and peace.
 
With the world barreling towards World War II, Huberman’s violin became his sword, as he travelled the world to help Jewish musicians in Europe. He became a musical miracle worker in a crumbling world. He was a maestro and a hero -- for saving Jewish musicians from the Holocaust. He established an orchestra in Palestine, which later became the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, one of the great orchestras of the world.
