More Fall 2012 Sneak Peeks... and E-Books!

Here's another title we're looking forward to this fall:

People Who Said No: Courage Against Oppression
Sometimes it's okay to ignore the rules or break the law. This book profiles people who stood up for what they believed in, even at great personal risk:

  • Siblings Sophie and Hans Scholl distributed anti-government pamphlets in Nazi Germany
  • Andrei Sakharov helped develop the nuclear bomb, then spoke out against its use
  • Rosa Parks sparked anti-segregation protests when she refused to move to the back of the bus
  • Oscar Romero, archbishop of El Salvador,  stood up for the rights of the poor
  • Helen Suzman, a South African MP, spoke out against Apartheid
  • Aung Sun Suu Kyi endured years of house arrest to protest the dictatorship in Burma
  • Protestors in Egypt ousted their autocratic president in just eighteen days
