About the Author

Carol Simon Levin is youth services librarian, author and historical impersonator specializing in "Telling HerStories: Fascinating Women History Forgot." She delights when members of the audience come up after her presentations wearing puzzled looks as they try to figure out how she can possibly be over 100 years old!

Whether she is impersonating the woman who helped to build the Brooklyn Bridge or the first woman to be elected to Congress, telling the amazing stories of early women in aviation, engaging families in a rousing Halloween Hootenany of songs and stories, expanding on the mathematical and artistic possibilities of a simple square, sharing the story of a dolphin who learned to swim with an artificial tail (along with activities to help children understand what it is like to live with a disability), or creating a coloring book and historical program celebrating ground-breaking women in American political history, she always strives to engage the audience's interests and expand their horizons.

She has always been particularly fascinated by the history of technology and women's history. She is happy to bring her presentations to libraries, senior centers, historical societies, schools, camps and other venues. Each can be tailored to different ages.
