Join the Woodbridge Main Library, March 30 at 7PM as Carol Simon Levin brings to life the incredible story of Lillian Moller Gilbreth, a pioneer in motion study and mother of 12, who played a crucial role in shaping our modern world.

Carol will also share the stories of other overlooked women innovators, including many women of color, who changed our lives with their groundbreaking inventions and ideas. From Margaret Knight, the "Female Edison" of the 19th century, to Hollywood superstar Hedy Lamarr, these "Mothers of Invention" accomplished amazing feats that were all too often ignored or discounted.

Register today here or call 732-634-4450.

This event is a must-see for all ages, as it offers a rare opportunity to learn about the untold stories of some of the most inspiring women in history. This is a great way to honor Women’s History month which takes place throughout the month of March.

Carol Simon Levin is a professional storyteller and independent historian who specializes in bringing to life the stories of "fascinating women history forgot." She is a NJ Council for the Humanities Public Scholar and author of Remembering the Ladies: From Patriots in Petticoats to Presidential Candidates. With a BA focusing on women's history and history of technology from Cornell University and a Masters in Library Services from the University of Arizona, Carol is the founder of Telling Her Stories.

This event is part of the New Jersey Makers Day celebration, which inspires and activates libraries to showcase and highlight STEM and maker culture, enhancing lifelong learning.
