Valorie Castellanos Clark discusses Unruly Figures

Unruly Figures gives you access to the lives and often untold stories of twenty of history's most fascinating individuals. Of all the rebels and revolutionaries who have acted around the world, these are often overlooked. Whether they are a bit familiar or entirely new to you, each of these historical figures provides a vivid example of what it means to live life on one's own terms and have a lasting influence on society.

In the first collection of its kind, spotlighting a young historian's fresh view on unheralded rebels, these characters' true stories are brought to life through enthralling narratives of their feats and an original illustration of each. Even those whose names are recognizable--like Jonas Salk--have moments of rebellion that are largely left out of their histories.

Dive into this collection of hidden history tales--those of scientists, artists, revolutionaries, activists, heirs to thrones, and so many more--and you are guaranteed to be inspired by how they lived on their own unconventional terms. (Princeton Architectural Press)
