Kids Books for Women’s History Month and More

To celebrate Women’s History Month, Carol Roberts of Troy Public Library’s Young People’s Services suggests two books on women athletes and one on a woman wartime photojournalist, plus a recent horror book. Those discussed are: “Inaugural Ballers: The True Story of the First U.S. Women’s Olympic Basketball Team” (Maraniss, 2022); “Fall Down Seven Times, Stand Up Eight: Patsy Takemoto Mink and the Fight for Title IX” (picture book, Bryant, 2022); “Close-Up on War: The Story of Pioneering Photojournalist Catherine Leroy in Vietnam” (Farrell, 2022); and “The Stars Did Wander Darkling” (Meloy, 2022). Produced by Brea Barthel for Hudson Mohawk Magazine.
