Wisconsin Book Festival Presents Pat Zietlow Miller for A GIRL CAN BUILD ANYTHING & Bubbler Making Workshop

Community Rooms A and B Combined
Saturday, Sep 9, 10:00am to 10:15am

A brilliant, inclusive ode to self-expression, girl power, and the many things readers can create. Have you ever dreamed of building something? Maybe something little—like a birdhouse? Or something big—like a skyscraper? If you can envision it, you can build it! From tinkering to tool-wielding, from ideas on paper to big, lived-out dreams that require brick and mortar, this book will inspire readers to grab their own tools, get creative, and get building! Because they can. They can do anything. 

e.E. says, "While A Girl Can Build Anything celebrates the mental and physical experience of building, it's also a story about community, about perseverance, about innovation, and accepting failure as part of growing." Perfect for the real-life Rosie Revere Engineers or Ada Twist Scientists, and for all children, whether they're looking for a way to express themselves, a new hobby, or are dreaming of building a better world. 

Please note this event will take place at Pinney Library, Community Rooms A & B.  Our friends with The Bubbler will also feature a Making Workshop. All kids who attend will receive a free copy of A Girl Can Build Anything, courtesy of the American Girl Fund for Children.
