Pirate Queens at City Tech

March 17 @ 6:00 pm 8:00 pm

Pirate Queens at City Tech 1

In celebration of Women’s History Month in March, City Tech will be hosting an event for author Leigh Lewis and illustrator, COMD’s own Sara Gómez Woolley on their National Geographic book tour for Pirate Queens the Dauntless Women who Dared to Rule the High Seas.

Join illustrator Sara Gómez Woolley and author Leigh Lewis for a behind-the-scenes look at the making of National Geographic Kids’ new book, PIRATE QUEENS. Moderated by Professor George Garrastegui as part of the COMD Meet the Pros series, this conversation will discuss the intersection of research and illustration, to the written manuscript and will illuminate the process behind creating a culturally and historically accurate illustrated book.  Through these Illustrations we will explore the lives of these amazing women who lived outside the roles assigned to them by gender and birth, turning to piracy and ruling their day. Books will be available for purchase and signing at the event.

This in-person event will be at the NEW Academic Complex Theater.
