The Secret Sidekicks Of History

Chronicle Books

From the First Lady who ran the White House after Woodrow Wilson's stroke to the husband who stayed grounded while Amelia Earhart took off, history is full of interesting "plus-ones." 

These unsung heroes of history are featured in text and art in The Who, the What, and the When: 65 Artists Illustrate the Secret Sidekicks of History

Authors Jenny Volvovski and Julia Rothman did most of the text work. 

They join us to talk about their project.
