Parnassus Books is happy to welcome two Nashville illustrators to celebrate their new picture books. Kayla Stark is the illustrator of Bread for Words: A Frederick Douglass Story and Vivien Mildenberger is the illustrator for The Voice That Won the Vote: How One Woman's Words Made History.
Out of an abundance of caution, and in the interest of keeping everyone safe and healthy, we ask that guests refrain from handshakes or other close personal contact with the author at the event. We appreciate your understanding.
About the Books
Bread for Words: A Frederick Douglass Story - Told from first-person perspective, this picture-book biography draws from the real-life experiences of a young Frederick Douglass and his attempts to learn how to read and write.
The Voice That Won the Vote: How One Woman's Words Made History - Women's suffrage in America came down to a single voter in Tennessee who voted yes because of a letter his mother had written, urging "Vote for suffrage and don't forget to be a good boy." This is the story of the letter than gave all American women a voice.
