Saturday Morning Story Time with Kim Chaffee
As Boston will have just celebrated its 123rd running of the Boston Marathon, we are thrilled to have Kim Chaffee here to read her new book, "Her Fearless Run: Kathrine Switzer's Historic Boston Marathon". Kathrine Switzer changed the world of running. This narrative biography follows Kathrine from running laps as a girl in her backyard to becoming the first woman to run the Boston Marathon with official race numbers in 1967. Her inspirational true story is for anyone willing to challenge the rules. Kim Chaffee, a life-long New Englander and debut author, is a former second-grade teacher now focusing on writing and being a mom. She holds a BA in history and a master’s in education. In addition to blogging about picture books for parents, teachers, and writers, she organizes a local annual race. She also enjoys running and lives with her family in New Hampshire. Please join us for the special story time!
