Meet The Author of 'The Girl Explorers'

 

Meet the author of The Girl Explorers, Jayne Zanglein, at 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 26, at City Lights Bookstore in Sylva. She will greet folks and sign books.

The Girl Explorers is the inspirational and untold story of the founding of the Society of Women Geographers — an organization of adventurous female world explorers — and how key members served as early advocates for human rights and paved the way for today's women scientists by scaling mountains, exploring the high seas, flying across the Atlantic, and recording the world through film, sculpture, and literature. Some notable members include Blair Niles, Amelia Earhart, Gloria Hollister, and Anna Heyward Taylor.

Jayne Zanglein is a lawyer by profession and The Girl Explorers is her first non-law book. A Professor Emeritus, she teaches law at Western Carolina University. To reserve copies, call City Lights Bookstore in Sylva at 828.586.9499.

At our inception 20 years ago, we chose to be different. Unlike other news organizations, we made the decision to provide in-depth, regional reporting free to anyone who wanted access to it. We don’t plan to change that model. Support from our readers will help us maintain and strengthen the editorial independence that is crucial to our mission to help make Western North Carolina a better place to call home. If you are able, please support The Smoky Mountain News.

The Smoky Mountain News is a wholly private corporation. Reader contributions support the journalistic mission of SMN to remain independent. Your support of SMN does not constitute a charitable donation. If you have a question about contributing to SMN, please contact us.
