Press Release:

Page & Panel is excited to welcome our friend, the incredible write Sam Maggs back to Toronto, for the debut of her new book! Sam is the author of The Fangirls Guide to the Galaxy and contributor to The Secret Loves of Geek Girls anthology, both of which were launched right here at Page & Panel! Well now we’re thrilled to be hosting the launch party for the brand new Wonder Women: 25 Innovators, Inventors, and Trailblazers Who Changed History, and you’re invited!

The launch party will take place on the second floor of The Pilot Bar, 22 Cumberland Street, starting at 6:30 PM on Friday, October 14th. Much like our launch for Fangirls Guide to the Galaxy, the party should be a lot of fun and will even feature Sam saying a few words about the book! Sam will be on hand all night to sign for and meet fans too!

Here’s a little bit about Wonder Women:

A fun and feminist look at forgotten women in science, technology, and beyond, from the bestselling author of THE FANGIRL’S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY

You may think you know women’s history pretty well. But have you ever heard of…

Alice Ball, the chemist who developed an effective treatment for leprosy—only to have the credit taken by a man?
Mary Sherman Morgan, the rocket scientist whose liquid fuel compounds blasted the first U.S. satellite into orbit?
Huang Daopo, the inventor whose weaving technology revolutionized textile production in China—centuries before the cotton gin?
Smart women have always been able to achieve amazing things, even when the odds were stacked against them. In Wonder Women, author Sam Maggs tells the stories of the brilliant, brainy, and totally rad women in history who broke barriers as scientists, engineers, mathematicians, adventurers, and inventors. Plus, interviews with real-life women in STEM careers, an extensive bibliography, and a guide to women-centric science and technology organizations—all to show the many ways the geeky girls of today can help to build the future.
