Buck Up: Life Lessons From Young Heroines

Posted by Lizzie on 06/10/09

I’m on NPR! Click to listen to discourse on how the wee heroines of literature are far less whiny than we are. (Oooo, that rhymes.)

  1. Dear Lizzie,

    Thank you for re-introducing me to “Island of the Blue Dolphins”. Your discussion on NPR brought the memories of that book rushing back.

    Like the heroine using shiny shells to flash in the sun and to keep the birds away from her drying food.

    Thank you for bringing a book, of at least 23 years ago, back to me. I look forward to getting it to give to my younger cousins.

    Another book in this genre I would recommend is “Julie of the Wolves”.

  2. I said this elsewhere on your site, but I really did love hearing you talk on NPR. I was making dinner for my own misunderstood son and you made me laugh. My mom and I talked about Misunderstood Betsy just last night because of your show. I’m afraid that I am like Betsy pre-farm, rather than post-farm.
    Anyways, Bravo, again.
