Product description

Review

**STARRED REVIEW**
"With meaningful content delivered in an innovative format,
The Stonewall Riots deserves to be required reading for people of all ages." (Shelf Awareness)

"A substantive look at a key moment in the history of the LGBTQIAP-equality movement." (
Kirkus Reviews)

"Pitman’s fresh storytelling brings emotion and depth to the history of a movement and the establishment that served as an epicenter for social change." (
Publishers Weekly)

"The narrative is presented through a series of "objects": photographs of places, people, or items, such as a police officer's nightstick, a parking meter, a matchbook, or a protest leaflet. Though each object only reveals a small part of the story, together they reveal a powerful picture and offer rich historical context . . . [An] inviting, engaging, and well-researched approach to history." (
Booklist)

"In brief chapters themed around objects and places associated with the run-up, aftermath, and three days of rioting, readers get a credible reconstruction of events and the context with which to frame it." (
The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books)

"An important look at a major moment in American history. Readers will come to understand why the iconic Stonewall Inn is now on the National Register of Historic Places, a National Historic ­Landmark, and a National ­Monument." (
School Library Journal) --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
