About this title

Synopsis:

In 1872, American women couldn't vote, but they could run for president.

Can you name the first woman to run for president, or the first woman
to have a seat on the stock exchange? Do you know the first woman
to own a newspaper or to speak before Congress?

Amazingly, one woman achieved each of these feats, and her name has been all but erased from history. Born in complete poverty, the seventh
of ten children, Victoria Woodhull was supporting her family by the
age of eight as a child preacher. Seeking a better life, she married, divorced, moved to New York City, and became a millionaire by offering Cornelius Vanderbilt financial advice from the spirit world.

Victoria did not stop there. Now that she had money and power, she was ready to challenge society's harsh limitations on women. Her boldest act was announcing herself as the first female candidate for the presidency
of the United States. She founded her own newspaper to publicize this groundbreaking campaign, which took her from the chambers of Congress to the glorious moment when she was nominated by the Equal Rights Party at a convention that she, a woman, had organized and funded.

In the first book about Victoria Woodhull for young readers, Kathleen Krull and Jane Dyer team up to bring one of the most fascinating personalities in U.S. history to life.

- The perfect book to explore the electoral process during the upcoming presidential election.
- One of the most revolutionary American women has been
forgotten by history-until now.
- Walker & Company is proud to welcome acclaimed biographer Kathleen Krull and talented illustrator Jane Dyer to our list.

About the Author:

When Kathleen Krull was fifteen, she was fired from her part-time job at the public library for reading too much. She took that passion to her career in children's books and has become a noted biographer for children. Her Wilma Unlimited was named an ALA Notable; her Lives of the Presidents was a School Library Journal Best Book of the Year and a Boston Globe/Horn Book honor book; and her nonfiction has won innumerable other awards.

A Woman for President is Kathleen's first book with Walker & Company.
She lives with her husband, illustrator Paul Brewer, in San Diego, California.

Jane Dyer is the beloved illustrator of many bestselling picture-books, including Time for Bed by Mem Fox, Babies on the Go by Linda Ashman, and I Love You Like Crazy Cakes by Rose Lewis, which received a starred review from Kirkus Reviews and was a New York Times bestseller. She brings her talented hand to picture-book biography for the first time in A Woman for President. Jane lives in Northampton, Massachusetts.
