Perusing my Facebook feed, I came across this link for a story on an author that almost became forgotten. Thanks to Russ Linton, local author, for reposting it and turning me on to a new author whose books I can’t wait to track down.
The Disappearance of John M. Ford – Slate.com
Skateboarding is not normally an all-male sport in other countries and Atita Verghese of Girl Skate India uses it to help break down gender walls in her country. In fact, twelve female skateboarders from nine different countries crossed India in 2016 teaching skateboarding and empower other Indian girls.
I always like to show my daughter great stories or videos about girls everywhere who break social norms and this one is awesome. Hopefully, it inspires her and other girls to go out and do the same!
