A Seat at the Table: The Nancy Pelosi Story

Nancy Pelosi grew up watching her father, the mayor of Baltimore, welcome in people of all different backgrounds to sit at their table and make their voices heard. Nancy's mother always stood beside him, working behind the scenes to help her husband and the people he served. When Nancy grew up, she continued working behind the scenes in politics until a friend asked her to run for Congress herself — jump-starting a 33 year career as a political representative and taking her higher than she could have once imagined.

This inspiring picture-book biography about Nancy Pelosi shows her journey from a childhood watching politics happen to her marble-ceiling-shattering four terms as Speaker of the House, including the historic events of January 6th, 2021. The backmatter includes an exclusive interview with Nancy Pelosi herself. Young girls, especially, will be inspired by Nancy's journey and her commitment to using her voice to help others and to make sure women are heard in government.

Description

"Highlighting the powerful impact of her upbringing as the daughter of Baltimore’s first Italian American mayor, a young Pelosi is shown watching her mother feed and listen to hungry and marginalized citizens around their dining table. Parallel vignettes show her mother and, later, Pelosi herself carrying out behind-the-scenes political activism while raising young families.... A final close-up of Pelosi in a face mask, wielding her gavel, sends a resilient message." — Publishers Weekly
