    Anne Bradstreet 1612-1672

    Poet, Pilgrim, Rebel by Katie Munday Williams, and illustrated by Tania Rex, is the true story of Anne Bradstreet, a Puritan woman who overcame the obstacles facing women of her era to become the first published American poet---and one of the most famous poets in history. Late at night, with her children tucked into bed and her husband away on business, Anne Dudley Bradstreet composed poems by candlelight. She let her thoughts from the day tumble out, memorizing each poem line by line before daring to shape the words onto scraps of scarce parchment. Puritan women in the 1600s weren't allowed to be writers. But when the world learned about Anne's poetry, even she was astonished by what happened next. Recommended for ages 5 to 8 years.
