Astoria: Alexandra Davis on Lumber Jills

March 30 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

Free

Join Alexandra Davis on March 30th for a rousing discussion of her new children’s book, Lumber Jills, and an engaging, interactive activity.

In World War II, Great Britain needed lumber to make planes, ships, and even newspapers—but there weren’t enough men to cut down the trees. Enter the fearless Lumber Jills! These young women may not have had much woodcutting experience, but they each had two hands willing to work and one stout heart, and they came together to do their part. Discover this lyrical story of home front heroism and female friendship.
