Kate Sessions: Mother of Balboa Park

In this charming children’s book, author and illustrator Joy Raab tells how San Diego’s unique urban park became a botanical, as well as cultural, wonderland. Kate Sessions: Mother of Balboa Park chronicles the story of Kate’s life from her days as a student in Oakland in the late 1800s, to her proudest moment, when, at age 81, she received a medal from the American Genetic Association – first ever awarded to a woman – for her work in flower and plant introduction. Soft cover.
