Carol Levin librarian red jacketCarol Simon Levin has had a career as a college & children’s librarian, author, independent historian, storyteller and program presenter.  

Carol Simon Levin is a professional storyteller and independent historian who specializes in telling the stories of “fascinating women history forgot” through first person portrayals. She has authored the book Remembering the Ladies: From Patriots in Petticoats to Presidential Candidates which profiles 69 women — well-known and unknown — who worked tirelessly for women’s rights in America. Carol holds a BA focusing on women’s history and history of technology from Cornell University and a Masters in Library Services from the University of Arizona. She is also the founder of Telling Her Stories.

Whether she is impersonating the woman who helped to build the Brooklyn Bridge, telling the stories of early women in aviation or women’s rights, 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 audiences of all ages and expand their horizons.

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

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