This week’s book recommendation was chosen by Samantha Edwards, Youth and Family Engagement Librarian for the North-East Branch.

Samantha chose “Rise Up! The Art of Protest” by Jo Rippon.

“‘Rise Up!’ is a kid-friendly guide to historical activism and the art that has propelled it. Full of vibrant posters, street art and illustrations, this book gives historical context to activist struggles. From feminism to environmentalism, the book takes a look at what humans have fought for throughout our world’s history.”
