Kate T. Parker will present Strong Is the New Pretty: A Celebration of Girls Being Themselves

EVENT OVERVIEW:  Kate T. Parker, will Present her New Hardcover & Softcover Strong Is the New Pretty: A Celebration of Girls Being Themselves.  This Event is Co-Sponsored by Rainy Day Books & Girl Scouts of NE Kansas & NW Missouri.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Kate T. Parker is a mother, wife, former collegiate soccer player, Ironman, and professional photographer who shoots both fine art projects and commercial work for clients across North America.  Her Strong Is the New Pretty photo series has led to collaborations with brands like Athleta, Kellogg's, Oxygen, and Girls on the Run.  The project has also inspired Kate to launch a philanthropic arm of Strong Is the New Pretty, partnering with organizations that invest in girls' health and education.  When she's not photographing, she can be found coaching her daughters' soccer teams.  She lives with her family in Atlanta, Georgia.

ABOUT THE NEW BOOK:  Girls being fearless.  Girls being silly.  Girls being wild, stubborn, and proud.  Girls whose faces are smeared with dirt and lit up with joy.  So simple and yet so powerful, Strong Is the New Pretty celebrates, through more than 175 memorable photographs, the strength and spirit of girls being 100% themselves.  Real beauty isn't about being a certain size, acting a certain way, wearing the right clothes, or having your hair done (or even brushed).  Real beauty is about being your authentic self and owning it.

Kate T. Parker is a Professional Photographer who finds the real beauty in girls, capturing it for all the world to see in candid and arresting images.  A celebration, a catalog of spirit in words and smiles, an affirmation of the fact that it's what's inside you that counts, Strong Is the New Pretty conveys a powerful message for every girl, for every mother and father of a girl, for every coach and mentor and teacher, for everyone in the village that it takes to raise a strong and self-confident person.
