We’re thrilled to reveal the exclusive book trailer for Secret Engineer: How Emily Roebling Built the Brooklyn Bridge! Look for this one to publish from MacMillian Children’s Books on February 19, 2019. Press play below to watch the trailer!
Emily Warren Roebling was born on September 23, 1843 in Cold Spring, Putnam County, New York. Though most commonly known for being the wife of Washington Roebling and for her role in the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge, Emily accomplished much more throughout her life, such as obtaining her law degree from New York University’s Women’s Law class which she had enrolled in 1899.
