Join feminist artists and activists Kate Schatz and Miriam Klein Stahl—the Bay Area duo behind the New York Times best-selling books Rad Women Worldwide and Rad American Women A-Z, for the San Francisco launch of their third book Rad Girls Can. “This is a celebration of and a thank you to every girl who has have ever stood up, spoken out, taken a chance, tried something new, or followed a dream,” they write in the introduction of their latest collaboration. The book features fifty rad girls from around the world, who have done something to make the world a better place. Sabrina Moyle, the co-author of Be the Change: The Future is in Your Hands and co-founder of Hello!Lucky, will lead a discussion with Kate and Miriam about their activism, love of reading, writing and drawing, and we will end this interactive evening with storytelling, artwork, activism and creativity!


As Kate and Miriam embark on a national book tour this summer and fall, they will use gatherings like these in bookshops around the country to inspire more radness and activism in the world.


All big people and little people are welcome. Voter registration forms will be available. #radgirlscan #bethechangebook
