Graphic designer Helen Tseng is today’s guest for the Rad American Women A-Z Video Series and she is truly rad: check out her delightful illustrations here and tune in to the Astral Projection Radio Hour she co-hosts on BFF.fm for “occult vibes, sonic spells, and snack-o-scopes.” This week, Helen reads the “T is for Temple Grandin” section from Rad American Women A-Z and talks about her admiration of Grandin’s ability to turn what others considered a weakness into her superpower.
This is the next installment in the video series from City Lights where we ask women we admire to read their favorite entry of our New York Times-bestselling children’s book, Rad American Women A-Z, and answer some questions about what it means to be a rad woman today. The book is authored by Kate Schatz, illustrated by Miriam Klein Stahl and published by City Lights/Sister Spit.
