DAVID ROBERTS - SUFFRAGETTE: ILLUSTRATING THE BATTLE FOR EQUALITY 

Join New York Times bestselling author and illustrator David Roberts to get a behind-the-scenes look into his new book,  Suffragette: The Battle for Equality, an exquisitely illustrated history of the women’s suffrage movement.  David will share some stories of the bold and daring things the campaigners did to get the attention of the government. Find out about Irishwoman Mary Leigh who threw an axe at the British Prime Minster on a visit to Dublin (it missed him but hit his companion!).
