Audacity - Melanie Crowder

Inspired by real events, author Melanie Crowder tells the story of Clara Lemlich, the Russian Jewish immigrant who had the Audacity (Philomel, $17.99) to demand equal rights as a worker and a woman. Forbidden from reading and attending school, Clara disobeys her family’s wishes and educates herself while working tirelessly in deplorable conditions. Misunderstood and dismissed, she fights back and becomes an avid spokesperson and advocate for workers’ rights. Told in verse, this compelling novel is an important window into history, including comprehensive back matter, providing context for those who want to know more. Ages 13-16. Kasie Griffitts
