“The Making of America: Susan B. Anthony” by Teri Kanefield

Dramatic, lyrical, and beautifully illustrated, O Captain, My Captain tells the story of one of America’s greatest poets and how he was inspired by one of America’s greatest presidents. Walt Whitman, one of the most influential poets in the American canon, will celebrate his 200th birthday on May 31, 2019. Abraham Lincoln led the US through the Civil War – the bloodiest war and perhaps greatest moral and political crisis.

While Lincoln and Whitman shared the national stage in Washington, DC during the Civil War, the two men never met. However, the president was never far from the poet’s mind, and Lincoln’s “grace under pressure” was something Whitman returned to again and again in his poetry.

The Coca-Cola Trail by Larry Jorgensen
The Coca-Cola Trail by Larry Jorgensen

With Women’s History Month in March, it’s the perfect time to be inspired by real-life heroines. This book explores the life of Susan B. Anthony, who became an international figurehead for women’s right to vote after the Civil War.

She famously said: “Failure is impossible.” Anthony was born into a world in which men ruled women: a man could beat his wife, take her earnings, and have her committed into an asylum on his word alone. At that time in the US, “people” were understood to be white and male. Many people are unfamiliar with her story, even though her legacy is more relevant today than ever before.
