WHEN JACKIE SAVED GRAND CENTRAL

The True Story of Jacqueline Kennedy's Fight for an American Icon
The little-known true story of Jackie Kennedy’s role in saving New York City’s Grand Central Terminal is revealed in this dramatic and beautiful picture book. From letter-writing campaigns all the way to the Supreme Court, this book celebrates winning in the face of immeasurable odds and how ONE PERSON CAN MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE.
What a timely publication (March 7, 2017) for this non-fiction picture book about a strong female activist, who helped to shape our world by not giving up.
Written (pitch- perfect!) by Natasha Wing, illustrated by Alexandra Boiger (me!), published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. I hope you'll enjoy this fascinating story.
