History is all about links. So is the Internet. This blog post offers you both. But first, if you live around Portland, Oregon, here’s an opportunity to visit with women authors and artists, to celebrate Women’s History Month.
March 1, 2012: Meet and Greet
The First Thursday evening of every month is a Big Deal in Portlands Pearl District. Join me with other Portland authors and artists as we celebrate Womens History Month. Well be featured at Albina Community Banks First Thursday reception, from 6 pm to 9 pm at 430 NW 10th Ave. Youll have a chance to meet and greet me, of course, plus authors Carmen Bernier-Grand, Pamela Smith Hill, Barbara Kerley, Michelle McCann, and Elizabeth Rusch. Artists Addie Boswell and Sine Morse will display vibrant oil paintings and paper designs inspired by children and by Portland. Their work, as well as Blue Thread, will be available for sale for the month of March.
KidLit Mega Blog
The second annual, not-to-be-missed kidlit celebration of Women’s History Month runs throughout March, courtesy of two well-known reviewers in the world of literature for children and young adults, Margo Tanenbaum (The Fourth Musketeer) and Lisa Taylor (Shelf-Employed). Last year’s edition provided thirty-one great posts for over 20,000 blog readers during the month. This is not to be missed.

Don’t forget the Library of Congress, that old reliable source.Go to your nearest library, bookstore, or computer keyboard for information and inspiration that links us all together. And please remember that the celebration of women is an inclusive, not exclusive, activity. Men can be great human beings as well.
