Little Dreamers: Visionary Women Around the World
The highly anticipated follow-up to Harrison's award-winning Little Leaders book is Little Dreamers: a book that illustrates and chronicles the stories of 35 inspirational women from across the globe, both living and deceased. Harrison introduces readers to trailblazing women from many countries and time periods, including: environmental activist Wangari Maathai, architect Zaha Hadid, modernist painter Mary Blair, and many more. Vashti Harrison says that in this book, she wanted to fill the pages with the stories of creative people, but in doing so she also wanted to challenge the traditional notion of what it means to be creative. Harrison argues that any field that requires critical thinking and invention can be a creative one. With that in mind, physicist Chien-Shiung Wu definitely counts as a creative thinker just as much as an artist like Frida Kahlo would.
