Join the New York Historical Society Museum and Library for a virtual story time and craft celebrating Women's History Month... plus silly dances and games!

From the New York Historical Society Museum & Library: This month we will be celebrating Women’s History Month by learning all about amazing women through the ages! Ever since she was a little girl, Fatima al-Fihri loved to learn. Soon, that love grew into a wish! A wish to build a school where all people could learn, study, pray, and read. This week we are reading all about Fatima in One Wish: Fatima al-Fihri and the World's Oldest University, written by M. O. Yuksel, and illustrated by Mariam Quraishi. Fatima is the Arab woman credited with founding the al-Qarawiyyin Mosque in Morocco in the 9th century. After the story, dream just like Fatima by designing your own school at home!
