“Rad American Women A-Z: Rebels, Trailblazers, and Visionaries Who Shaped Our History . . . and Our Future!” (City Lights) is for anyone, age 8 and up, curious about American history. Author Kate Schatz and illustrator Miriam Klein Stahl, who are teachers in the Bay Area, keep things moving with 26 one-page essays and boldly graphic portraits. The women they highlight span several centuries and a multitude of professions. Among the lesser-known women are journalist Jovita Idar, who fought for the rights of Mexican children in Texas to get an education, and Hazel Scott, who in 1950 became the first African-American to host her own TV show.
