Illustrator of Friends for Freedom: The Story of Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass, Nicole Tadgell, will speak Saturday, March 14, from 2-3 p.m., at Pequot Library. This program is free and open to the public.

Tadgell is illustrator of more than 20 books including With Books and Bricks: How Booker T. Washington Built a School. Publishers Weekly – Starred Review says, “Tadgell’s carefully drafted and evocative watercolors capture both the past and present obstacles Anthony and Douglass faced, from Douglass’s youth as a slave to rotten eggs hurled at the two when they appeared in public together and combative differences of opinion, as when the Fifteenth Amendment proposed to give voting rights to black men but not to women.”

An art workshop featuring a hands-on activity to explore storytelling follows the Q & A. Registration required for art workshop, 203-259-0346, ext. 18. Books will be available for purchase and signing.

Be sure to sign up for our Pequot Library’s April Vacation Week workshops: Build with Books – Making a Life-size Structure Using Books as Bricks on 4/14; 4/15; and 4/16. Visit for more information.

For more information visit or call 203-259-0346, ext. 15.
