Other Books by Susan Savion


I am the author of four teacher resource books: Quotes to Start the Day, Quotes That Bring History To Life, Quotes to Stretch Your Brain, and Quotes to Spark Discussion. My books are published by Incentive Publications/World Book. They are most suitable for Middle School students. They consist of a quote and a brief bio of the author of the quote and interactive activities for students. They can be used for character education, writing, and English activities, starters for thematic instruction and many other uses. Many have found them very useful for home schooling, as well. Their purchase price is $9.99. Recently, my latest book, Quoting Matilda: The Words and History of a Forgotten Suffragist, about Suffragist and Abolitionist Matilda Joslyn Gage, is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, LitFire Publishers, The Syracuse Historical Society Bookstore, and local bookstores, including The Gage Museum Gift Shop and Seneca Falls Woman’s Heritage Museum Book Store. Softback, Hardbound and Kindle. I have also completed a screenplay that is being shopped around currently. It is all about Matilda Joslyn Gage and many of the important people she interacted with as an abolitionist, suffragist, writer, editor and passionate progressive social activist. She authored several books, including “Women As Inventors,” and “Woman, Church and State.” The working title is “The Matilda Effect.” The Matilda Effect is a real designation for women who have in vented or created things but a man gets the credit for it. Though this still happens, it was much more prominent when women did not have the right to get patents. I have had two of my poems published in Aaduna Magazine. I belong to a Writers Group that meets monthly. Many of my poems and essays are published in their annual publication called Voices in the Key of May.
