Meet the winner of this year’s Children’s History Book Prize! On Saturday, June 1, Ellen Klages will be at New-York Historical to talk about her award-winning book, Out of Left Field. Klages will join in our book discussion and answer your questions. Afterwards, we will do a special guided tour of the Gallery of Tiffany Lamps to explore the ways that historians can rediscover and amplify voices of women forgotten by history, just as the heroine of Out of Left Field, Katy Gordon, does.
In anticipation of our special Book Prize Book Club, be sure to check out our author interview with Klages here.
Also, to hear from a real-life athlete who faced trials similar to the challenges Katy faces in the novel, check out this interview here with baseball pioneer Maria Pepe. Pepe will be joining us on May 30 for this year’s Book Prize ceremony.
