Summer Literary Picnic: Leigh Lewis

Wednesday, July 27 - 6:00 PM


Leigh Lewis is a children’s writer and poet who dreams up stories for kids of all ages. Join us on the lawn at 6:00 pm for pirate-themed activities!

Pirate Queens: Dauntless Women Who Dared To Rule The High Seas explores the stories of women pirates whose tales have been quieted by history. Each pirate profile includes a dramatic original poem presented against a backdrop of gorgeous full-color art by award-winning illustrator Sara Gómez Woolley. Each profile is followed by fascinating information about the real life and times of these daring (and dangerous!) women.

Meet Ching Shih, a Chinese pirate who presided over a fleet of 80,000 men (by contrast, Blackbeard had some 300). Get the scoop on Anne Bonny who famously ran away from an arranged marriage to don trousers and brandish a pistol in the Bahamas. And there are more!

Vetted by the world’s leading pirate experts and historians, this book is perfect for any curious kid who dreams of adventure and for parents who are eager to show their tweens and teens that history is more diverse, daring, and surprising than what is typically found in textbooks.
