Incredible Nellie Bly
by Luciana Cimino Author, Sergio Algozzino Illustrator and David Randall Foreword
Nellie Bly was a remarkable woman and investigative journalist who refused to be defined by the time she lived in, choosing to make it in the world on her own terms. In this meticulously researched graphic-novel biography, Luciana Cimino utilizes Miriam, a fictionalized female student at the Columbia School of Journalism in 1921 who interviews Bly. Along with Miriam, we learn about Bly's sensational adventures, her most well-known exploits as a journalist, her focus on self-reliance from an early age, the scathing letter to the editor that jump-started her career as a newspaper columnist, her dedication to the empowerment of women, and so much more. This stunning graphic novel deftly paints a portrait of a woman who defied societal expectations with verve.
