Ruth Tenzer Feldman will be at the store to read from her recently published young adult novel, Blue Thread (Ooligan Press). This historical novel celebrates the women’s suffrage movement by transporting readers back to 1912 through the story of sixteen-year-old Miriam Josefsohn, who uncovers a family secret that gives her the courage to demand rights for women and a different life for herself. A reviewer for Portland Monthly writes, “Blue Thread is not just a story about the past, but a call to renewed action – a reminder that even though the suffrage movement succeeded, struggles for personal liberation continue.” Ruth Feldman is an award-winning author of numerous nonfiction books for children and young adults. She lives in Portland.
