Dougherty — aka “Undertaker’s Daughter” — is a skater for both the Rocky Mountain Rollergirls’ Project Mayhem and Sugar Kill Gang teams, and the mother of one of the Rocky Mountain Rollerpunks junior league’s rising stars. She says she’s proud to have derby in her daughter’s life as a diversion from the prevailing princess culture.
Bring your own kids — and your roller skates, scooters or skateboards — to get things rolling at the launch party for the series, on Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the parking lot at TAXI, 3544 Ringsby Court. Dougherty and co-writers Karen Windness and Alece Birnbach (who also contributed the illustrations) will be signing copies of Rise of the Undead Redhead, the first book in the series, while the Rollergirls and Rollerpunks help introduce young readers to the sport. Visit the Facebook event page for information.
