BookMarks! Amelia and Eleanor Go for a Ride by Pam Munoz Ryan

After School, Weekend
On Campus Program

When flying was still quite new, women didn’t fly and few women even drove cars – but the two daring women we’ll read about did both! What would it have been like to be there in the White House at that dinner, or even to have flown or driven around Washington, DC in the dark? All will have the opportunity to work together to write a script and put on a short skit as if we were all there on the night Amelia flew and Eleanor drove! Younger participants will have fun with pretend play and props!
