When Pam Toler told people she was working on a book about women warriors, almost everyone said, “You mean like Joan of Arc?” The short answer is, “Not always.” Beginning with the oldest known women warriors, Toler will introduce you to women warriors who turned out to be more important than we ever realized and debunk the myth that women have not, and therefore cannot, be warriors. Armed with a doctorate in history, a well-thumbed deck of library cards, and curiosity, author, speaker and historian Pam Toler will share this history with us. Going beyond the familiar scope of American history, she will tell stories of women warriors from around the globe. Toler has authored eight books of popular history for children and adults, including “Women Warriors: An Unexpected History.” Her work has appeared in Aramco World, Calliope, History Channel Magazine, MHQ: The Quarterly Journal of Military History, The Washington Post and time.com.
Pam Toler is this year's Beachside Authorfest Keynote speaker. She will also be at Saturday's event so stop by and say hello!
