Join Us for an Evening with Bestselling Author Chelsea Clinton

Reception and Book Event

We are proud to partner with Rainy Day Books as we welcome Bestselling Author Chelsea Clinton. We look forward to Chelsea presenting her latest children’s book,  START NOW! You Can Make a Difference. Aimed at readers ages 7-10 (perfect for our Brownie and Junior Girl Scouts),  START NOW features facts, stories and tips on how to change the world. With information on problems both large and small, Chelsea Clinton breaks down the concepts of health, hunger, climate change, endangered species and bullying, so that readers can understand the world around them, and how they can make a difference in their own lives, as well as in their communities and the world at large. With comic drawings to illustrate Chelsea's words, photographs of real live kids who are making a difference today, and lists of ways to get involved, this book is the perfect introduction to young activists who want to make the world a better place.
