Shark Lady
Written by Linda Skeers
Illustrated by Marta Álvarez Miguéns

Eugenie Clark fell in love with sharks from the first moment she saw them at the aquarium. But Eugenie quickly discovered that many people believed sharks to be ugly and scary ― and those people also didn’t think women should be scientists. Come hear an inspiring story of a woman who dared to dive, defy, discover, and embolden others ― a wonderful start to celebrating Women’s History Month!

Storytime: 11 a.m. (EST)
