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.
