Miss Mary Reporting | Little Lit Book Series

Mary Garber was born loving sports.  She also found that writing came naturally to her.  As a kid, she started her own newspaper.   She eventually set her sights on becoming a sportswriter and endured "her own share of slights and struggles" including not being allowed in the press box at college football games because she was a woman.  She persisted, worked hard"with steady determination" and gained respect from coaches, athletes and readers.  She led an incredible career, won many awards, had a lasting positive impact on the lives of many young athletes and paved the way for other female sports reporters.  Miss Mary Reporting is a fantastic, engaging account of her life and her legacy as a sportswriter.

Miss Mary Reporting: The True Story of Sportswriter Mary Garber was written by Sue Macy, illustrated by C.F. Payne and published by Paula Wiseman Books.
