Carole Lindstrom presents Autumn Peltier, Water Warrior (in our kids area!)

December 16, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm EST


Join the author of the New York Times bestselling and Caldecott Award-winning “We Are Water Protectors” for a reading for kids featuring her picture book biography about two Indigenous Rights Activists, Josephine Mandamin and Autumn Peltier.
The seventh generation is creating A sea of change.

It was a soft voice, at first. Like a ripple. But with practice it grew louder.

Indigenous women have long cared for the land and water, which in turn sustains all life on Earth—honoring their ancestors and providing for generations to come. Yet there was a time when their voices and teachings were nearly drowned out, leaving entire communities and environments in danger and without clean water.

But then came Grandma Josephine and her great-niece, Autumn Peltier.

Featuring a foreword from water advocate and Indigenous Rights Activist Autumn Peltier herself, this stunning picture book from _New York Times-_bestselling author Carole Lindstrom and illustrator Bridget George gives voice to the water and asks young readers to join the tidal wave of change.

Carole Lindstrom is the author of the _New York Times _bestselling and Caldecott Award-winning _We Are Water Protector_s. She is Anishinabe/Métis and is a proud member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Ojibwe Indians. She was born and raised in Nebraska and currently makes her home in Maryland.
