CHECK BACK OFTEN TO SEE WHAT'S NEW
Top of the Heap!
Just heard from Game Changer fan and supporter Sheelagh Andersen from North Carolina. She donated several books to local schools in her home state. Game Changers makes the top of the heap in the display at Carrboro High School library, NC!
Game Changers Makes a Splash!
Marga Gomez posted a shout out to her fan base on social media Jan 15th:
"I got an eye-popping illustrated chapter in "Game Changers" a genius full color lesbian history textbook for schools. The creator Robin Lowey brought a copy to my show #latinstandards at @bravatheater. Check out this cool, adorable book and find out how to get it for your home or school"
First High School Visit
In December, I met with the Gay Straight Alliance at Sir Francis Drake High School in Marin County, CA. Each student GSA member received a book and we had a great discussion about the new curriculum and developing a lesson plan for Game Changers. The GSA advisor, a social studies teacher, invited me to do a presentation for her class. Stay tuned for updates!
Meeting with Featured Game Changers
Getting content for each woman's illustrated timeline was not always easy! Many of the busy and important lesbians I worked with were often hard to pin down. I cornered Kate Kendell of NCLR in her San Francisco home in order to get photos and final details for her timeline in the nick of time, just weeks before my printing deadline.
First Meeting with Lyndsey Schlax of SOTA
I went to Ruth Asawa San Francisco School of the Arts (SOTA) earlier this year to meet with Lyndsey Schlax, the creator of the first LGBT studies course. We discussed Game Changers and she assured me that the book was very much needed resource for the new curriculum
"LGBT studies will explore the American experience of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex and agender individuals in the United States and across the world" - Lyndsey Schlax
