Paola Gianturco - Grandmother Power
All Library locations will be closed on Saturday, July 4 in observance of Independence Day.
The grandmothers of today are younger, healthier, better educated, and better off than grandmothers have ever been. And, as photojournalist Paola Gianturco shows in her book Grandmother Power: A Global Phenomenon, these women have embraced activism to fight poverty, disease, illiteracy, environmental degradation, and human rights abuses.
For the past 16 years, Gianturco has worked as a photojournalist, documenting women’s lives in fifty-five countries. One hundred percent of the author royalties from this book will go to the Grandmother-to-Grandmother campaign of the Stephen Lewis Foundation in Toronto.
