Our October Book Bunch is all about Alaska featuring suggested title Fighter in Velvet Gloves by Annie Boochever and Roy Peratrovich, Jr which is about Alaska civil rights hero Elizabeth Peratrovich. Fighter in Velvet Gloves is recommended for ages 10 and up. Younger children may read any book about Alaska and join in the fun!
From the book jacket: “In 1945, when Elizabeth was 34 years old, she gave a powerful speech before a packed session of the Alaska Territorial Legislature. Her testimony about the evils of racism crowned years of work by Alaska Native people and their allies and led to the passage of Alaska’s landmark Anti-Discrimination Act, nearly two decades before President Lyndon Johnson signed the US Civil Rights Act of 1964.”
Book Bunch is designed with upper elementary age children in mind, but all ages/family members are welcome to join us! Don’t forget to bring some silly jokes or riddles to share!
The Seward Community Library Museum has 10 copies of Fighter in Velvet Gloves available for our patrons to check out. Ebooks are available through the Alaska Digital Library at adl.overdrive.com
