Recorded Past Programs
Our March 2021 Virtual Pajama Party was an online event for kids aged 8–12 focusing on women's history in sports, the Olympics, and gymnastics. Participants read I Got This: To Gold and Beyond, learned about historical documents in the National Archives, and participated in fun activities!
Our October 2020 Virtual Pajama Party focused on Jackie Robinson, including his barrier-breaking career in baseball – but also his lifelong commitment to civil rights work through civic engagement and advocacy. Participants read The Hero Two Doors Down.
The research and writing process is crucial to any successful manuscript—even more so for works of nonfiction that rely upon first-person source material to tell a story.
The Write Stuff included three authors talking about their work on researching women’s rights and suffrage and the movement that followed.
