Women's History Month Event: Pénélope Bagieu – Brazen

Sunday, March 11, 4pm
Left Bank Books

Left Bank Books presents an event in honor of Women's History Month with bestselling author and illustrator Pénélope Bagieu, who will sign and discuss her new graphic novel, Brazen: Rebel Ladies Who Rocked the World, with St. Louis illustrator Rori!

In Brazen, celebrated cartoonist Pénélope Bagieu tells the true stories of daring women throughout history. With her characteristic wit and dazzling drawings, Pénélope Bagieu profiles the lives of formidable female role models, some world famous, some little known. From Nellie Bly to Mae Jemison, or Josephine Baker to Naziq al-Abid, their stories are sure to inspire the next generation of rebel ladies.

"Wonderful. . . . Her cartooning style is a sheer delight." —Mental Floss

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of Brazen from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.
