New York Times bestselling author Laurie Halse Anderson makes every little girl and woman dreams come true in a graphic novel. Edited by Anderson and illustrated by a phenomenal group of artists and written by equally talented authors, the anthology will be telling the story of contemporary Wonder Women -- and how they‘ve changed our world.
“Wonder Woman has been an inspiration for decades, and while not everyone would choose her star-spangled outfit for themselves, her compassion and fairness are worthy of emulation,” wrote the author. “We‘ll be presenting tales of the real-world heroes who take up Diana’s mantle and work in the fields of science, sports, activism, diplomacy, and more!”
