Advance praise for City of Grit and Gold:
“City of Grit and Gold is an ideal pick for teachers and librarians who may want to use the work to supplement lessons on American history or have meaningful discussions about rights, immigration, and protesting.” —Foreword Reviews
“A worthy introduction to an important piece of history.” —Kirkus Reviews
“City of Grit and Gold is really a lovely book. The eight-hour-day movement and Haymarket events make a great backdrop for the growing pains of a twelve-year-old girl. The Haymarket details are engaging, atmospheric, and very accurate. Conflicting views are clearly laid out, but the universal need for social justice is beautifully presented. The reader is taken to the sights and smells of 19th-century Chicago, but the writing has a quality that will lead young readers to see that many of the same issues exist in the 21st–century world.” —Bleue Benton, Oak Park Public Library
