Senator Kirsten Gillibrand—Bold and Brave

In Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet

Tuesday, November 20, 7:30 p.m.

About the Program

The Skirball and Writers Bloc present United States Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a leading voice for women’s rights, discussing her new book, Bold and Brave: Ten Heroes Who Won Women the Right to Vote, with photographer-actress-entrepreneur Amanda de Cadenet (founder and CEO of Girlgaze).

Just in time for the 100th anniversary of the Nineteenth Amendment, which granted women the right to vote, Senator Gillibrand has written a beautiful children’s book to celebrate the suffragists who dreamed big and never gave up. Featuring art by Maira Kalman, Bold and Brave: Ten Heroes Who Won Women the Right to Vote is a testament, and a reminder, that we can’t take basic rights for granted.

A book signing follows the program. Books will be distributed at Will Call on the night of the program. Additional books available for purchase.
