Women's Equality Day on August 26th will celebrate the 98th anniversary of women's suffrage in the US, the passage of the 19th Amendment, guaranteeing women the right to vote. NYPL recommends these books, for all ages, on "Women, Activism, and Inspiration." https://on.nypl.org/2N7SpMM

In a medieval frame of mind? On James Patterson's Read Kiddo Read, you'll find a list of middle grade books to immerse yourself in the medieval world. At camp or in your neighborhood or in your book club, read Laura Amy Schlitz's monologues out loud from Good Masters! Sweet Ladies! Then read the best parts out loud from the other 14 recommended books including three of mine! http://bit.ly/2m6GDGQ

The Northern California Folk Music project, 1938-1940, collected by Sidney Robertson Cowell (photo below), sponsored by UC Berkeley, is housed at the American Folk Life Center. There are fascinating resources online at the Library of Congress. The collection includes songs from many ethnic backgrounds, with music harking all the way back to the California Gold Rush. http://bit.ly/2KnfJ88
