Book Trailer Thursday: A GLORIOUS FREEDOM

This week’s trailer features A Glorious Freedom (Chronicle Books) by bestselling author and artist Lisa Congdon. Her latest volume is a stunning collection of profiles, interviews and essays celebrating the joys of growing older. Through her colorful and detailed artwork, Congdon gives much deserved honor to prolific women who refused to be restricted by age and dared to break societal barriers. Vera Wang, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Julia Child and Katherine Johnson are a just a few of the women to have found creative fulfillment and accomplished great things in the second half of their lives. A Glorious Freedom is a refreshingly joyful portrayal of what it means to grow in age and maturity and a book of inspiration for women of all ages.
