Failure Is Impossible is suitable for grades 2 through 12.

All for Suffrage: Susan B. Anthony’s Kin is suitable for grades nine through 12.

Bedbugs and Mobs:

  • Gehret speaks as author, allowing her to give a 21st century perspective on Miss Anthony. Dramatic accounts of Anthony’s intrepid travels highlight the risks and inconveniences she endured to abolish slavery and champion women’s rights.
  • Her Powerpoint presentation includes photos and illustrations from the 19th century depicting Anthony’s birthplace and adult home, her Quaker upbringing, and the social conditions prompting her reform work.
  • For middle school, up to 60 minutes not in costume.
