Fearless: The Story of Daphne Caruana Galizia, Defender of Free Speech

As a little girl, Daphne wanted to be a writer, to be brave and use words and pictures to share important stories about her country, Malta. Growing up, she always had her nose in books, which she said taught her never to let other people think for her. As she got older, when she saw bad things happening in her country, she believed she could change people’s lives through peaceful protest. She would ultimately follow her dream by working for a national newspaper, becoming an influential and courageous political journalist who took on criminals the only way she knew how — through her writing.

In the end, despite increasingly dangerous — and ultimately fatal — efforts by her adversaries to silence her, Daphne made a difference and was an inspiration to all who believe in freedom of speech and the power of the press. In this compelling picture book, followed by a biographical note, debut author-illustrator Gattaldo explores the true story of an intrepid Maltese woman who followed her calling to be an investigative journalist — and refused to back down.

Description

"Author-illustrator Gattaldo’s narrative style has a lightly meandering, storytelling quality, fitting as a tribute for a friend.... Mixed media art combines soft watercolor washes with fluid, doodle-like lines and pops of color. A tender and contemporarily resonant portrait that highlights issues many journalists face." — Publishers Weekly
