Run Like A Girl - Book Launch

Danielle Brown MBE is an award-winning children’s author. She’s also a double Paralympic gold medallist in archery, five-time World Champion and was World Number 1 for her entire career. She made history when she became the first disabled athlete to represent England – and won gold – in an able-bodied category at the Commonwealth Games.
Her award-winning book Run Like a Girl is a collection of 50 fascinating biographies of highly successful sportswomen, from football superstar Mary Earps to record-breaking yachtswoman Ellen MacArthur and fearless skateboarder Sky Brown. As well as giving an insight into their influences, motivations and achievements, each story reminds us that failing can teach us just as much as winning; success isn’t limited to the sports field; and ‘running like a girl’ can lead you all the way to the top.

It’s an inspirational read for anyone from the age of eight upwards.

Skipton-based Danielle will be at Haworth’s Award-Winning Independent Bookshop, Wave of Nostalgia at 2PM on Saturday 27th July to launch an updated version of Run like a Girl to celebrate the 2024 Olympics and Paralympics.
Come along to the shop at 74 Main Street BD22 8DP and chat with her and get your book signed. It’s a free event, no need to book – just turn up!
