Carol red jacket

Carol Simon Levin is a retired librarian, author, storyteller and program presenter based in Bedminster N.J.   

Whether she is impersonating the woman who helped to build the Brooklyn Bridge, telling the amazing stories of early women in aviation, engaging families in a rousing Halloween Hootenany of songs and stories, expanding on the mathematical and artistic possibilities of a simple square, or sharing the story of a dolphin who learned to swim with an artificial tail (along with activities to help children understand what it is like to live with a disability), she always strives to create exciting programs that engage her audience’s interests and expand their horizons.

She has always been particularly fascinated by the history of technology and women’s history.  Recently, she authored Remembering the Ladies: From Patriots in Petticoats to Presidential Candidates and has created two programs introducing the women — well-known and unknown — who worked tirelessly for women’s rights in this country.

For  more information on her any of her Telling Her Stories  presentations, check out the website tellingherstories.com.

She can bring her presentations to libraries, senior centers, historical societies, schools, camps and other venues. Each can be tailored to different ages. Additional programs and resources for children and teachers can be found at: www.carolsimonlevin.blogspot.com.
