Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) is scheduled to visit the Barnes & Noble at Tysons Corner Center next Wednesday, Nov. 14, to promote her new children’s book “Bold and Brave: Ten Heroes Who Won Women the Right to Vote”.
Wristband tickets will be distributed starting at 10 a.m. for the signing, which is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. Wristbands will be distributed to attendees with a valid Barnes and Noble proof of purchase receipt.
According to the Barnes & Noble website, hardcover editions of the book are available for $17.09. It tells the story of ten suffragists who campaigned for women’s right to vote, from more prominent figures like Susan B. Anthony to lesser known people like Mary Church Terrell.
Gillibrand has represented New York in the U.S. Senate since 2009. She is up for re-election to the Senate tonight (Tuesday).
The book also features illustrations by artist Maira Kalman, an illustrator who has created art for The New Yorker and the New York Times.

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.
He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
