Karen Leggett Abouraya grew up in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, and worked as a broadcast journalist on WMAL Radio in Washington, D.C., for many years. She published “Hands Around the Library: Protecting Egypt’s Treasured Books” in 2012, an award-winning picture book illustrated by Susan L. Roth that tells the story of Egyptian protesters who held hands around the great library in Alexandria, Egypt, to protect it from vandals. In 2019, Karen celebrates Lee and Low’s publication of a new edition of “Malala Yousafzai: Warrior with Words,” highlighting the young Pakistani’s ongoing advocacy for girls’ education around the world.
Partially Reviewed: Rough draft. I've gone through these pictures once, removing the worst ones, some duplication, etc. I usually take sequences of 4 or 5 pictures at a time and there are lots of near duplicates. I'll be doing a final review later which will cull the pictures down some. To be honest though, I'm way behind on doing final reviews.
Recognize anyone? If you recognize specific people (or other things) in the pictures which I haven't labeled, please identify them for the world. Or fill in any other descriptions you can. Click the little pencil icon underneath the file name (just above the picture). Spammers need not apply.
