Caroline Paul / You Are Mighty: A Guide to Changing the World

May 19 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Free

The Bindery hosts a launch party for Caroline Paul‘s new book, You Are Mighty: A Guide to Changing the World. Bring the family and join us for fun, food, and books!

Kids all over the world are making a difference. With protests, marches, town halls, and speeches, kids have proven that they are paying attention. They’re not going to let their age be a reason to stay quiet.

It’s time for the youngest generation to show what they can do.

To guide them, New York Times bestselling author of The Gutsy Girl Caroline Paul has written an inspiring, instructional, and fun guide for kid activists: The Gutsy GirlYou Are Mighty: A Guide to Changing the World.

This guide features change-maker tips as well as anecdotes of young activists around the globe and throughout history. The suggested activist tactics covered range from tweaking everyday habits—like the sisters who call themselves the Plastic Patrol and convinced their family to stop using grocery bags and straws—to stretching to achieve something extraordinary—like the teen who used food waste to invent a water purification system.

Told in Caroline’s trademark breezy voice and including delightful illustrations from Lauren Tamaki, as well as tons of DIY activities, this is the ultimate practical—and fun!—manual for anyone looking to change the world.

 


 

Caroline Paul is the author of the New York Times bestselling The Gutsy Girl: Escapades for Your Life of Epic Adventure as well as the adult titles Lost Cat: A True Story of Love, Desperation, and GPS TechnologyEast Wind, Rain; and Fighting Fire. She lives in San Francisco, California.
