About Carol Simon Levin

Carol Simon Levin has had a career as a college & children’s librarian, author, storyteller and program presenter. 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. She has authored Remembering the Ladies: From Patriots in Petticoats to Presidential Candidates and has created three programs introducing the women — well-known and unknown — who worked tirelessly for women’s rights in this country. For more information on 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.
