Because reading about these historic figures helped her turn her own life around, Burkholder wanted to give others the same experience. The result is her newest book, 17 Women Who Shook the World, which tells the stories of women from Harriet Tubman to Meryl Streep and uses their successes to illustrate a 24-step program for achieving your dreams.
Burkholder will discuss her book today at 1 p.m. as part of a lecture series at the Forney Museum of Transportation, 4303 Brighton Boulevard. Tickets, which include museum admission, are $8 for members, $12 for non-members, and $20 for a pair. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, or visit forneymuseum.org.
