Join us on Tuesday, November 26 from 4-6pm as we welcome home Holliston High graduate and author Theresa Howell (ne. Schnapp), illustrator Alexandra Bye and Massachusetts State Representative Carolyn Dykema as they discuss Leading the Way: Women in Power!

Theresa Howell is the co-author of Maybe Something Beautiful which was inspired by the Urban Art Trail project in San Diego spearheaded by co-author Rafael Lopez and his wife, Candice, and has led to similar community art projects throughout the United States. Her latest project, Leading the Way: Women in Power with Senator Janet Howell and foreword by Hillary Rodham Clinton, spotlights the careers of fifty American women in politics — and inspires readers to make a difference.
Theresa began her career in publishing as a children’s book editor with Rising Moon, where she helped establish the bilingual imprint Luna Rising and published a number of award-winning titles. Theresa grew up in Holliston, Massachusetts. She lives in Colorado with her scientist husband and two creative, nature-loving daughters. There, she hikes, reads, dances, and dreams.
