Author Visit: Lily Williams and Kate Schneemann

This week we hosted an exceptional author visit at our library. The Class of 2025 heard from Lily Williams and Karen Schneemann about their brand new book Go With the Flow, which focuses on menstruation, equity, activism, and friendship. In preparation for the visit, our 7th graders had the opportunity to read Williams and Schneemann’s critically-acclaimed graphic novel. For more context, they watched the Oscar-winning short documentary Period. End of Sentence. which covers a group of women in Hapur, India working to make affordable feminine hygiene products available in their community. They also read about how this issue plays out closer to home, including the challenges inherent in managing menstruation for individuals faced with poverty or homelessness. Opening these conversations undermines taboos that result in harm to women and girls. An emphasis on awareness and solidarity left us all feeling energized.

Go With the Flow is available for check out at Casti Library!
