The month March bears a long colorful History of the women and lots of documentary, treaties and books have them recorded. To mark the month and its worthy history The Independent Television Service (ITVS) announced today that its Women and Girls Lead public media initiative will present in March a multifaceted set of activities for Women's History Month and International Women's Day.
To engage audiences on multiple platforms, Women and Girls Lead will launch its inaugural online film festival, present three high-profile events in recognition of International Women's Day, and unveil a new interactive campaign website, womenandgirlslead.org. "We are thrilled to celebrate and elevate the work of those who are fighting to uplift women everywhere," said Sally Jo Fifer, ITVS President and CEO.
Lindale Library library authority declared that they have books about all the favorite and renowned women in the world. They have biographies all the way from A (Abigail Adams) to Z (Anissa Zamarron). Texas history buffs will also know that March, 1836 was an important month, with Texas Independence declared on March 2, and the fall of the Alamo on March 6.
The library has many books on Texas history to refresh your memory of those times. Next week is “Return Those Borrowed Books Week.” It goes without saying that we at the library would like to have our books back, but remember to return those that you borrowed from a friend or neighbor. They might not even charge you a fine. Some new arrivals at the library include “The Rope” by Nevada Barr; “Death of Kings” by Bernard Cornwell; and “Believing the Lie” by Elizabeth George. Tom Clancy’s latest is “Locked On” and “Raylan” is by Elmore Leonard.
We want to say Happy Birthday to one of the toddler set’s favorite authors—Dr. Seuss. In his honor, March 2 is “Read Across American Day.” So settle down with a favorite book from your library and enjoy the day.
