Madison Kimrey is quite comfortable talking about early preregistration for teen voters, demanding a meeting with the North Carolina governor and speaking to Al Sharpton on MSNBC.
She's 12.
The tween, who lives in Burlington, N.C., calls herself an activist, suffragette and feminist. Her main cause is working to restore voter pre-registration for 16 and 17-year-olds in her home state, then making a case for it at the national level.
"It's going to happen eventually, if I'm 60 before it happens," Madison said in a phone interview from North Carolina earlier this week. "Honestly, I just want to get early pre-registration back in my state. But my big goal is to get a federal law passed."

Skype with Monica Carnesi

Families are invited to a special "Paws for Reading" Skype visit with author/illustrator Monica Carnesi at the Wood County District Public Library Children's Place on Wednesday at 4 p.m.
Every year on the first Wednesday of March, LitWorld, an advocacy campaign for the human right of literacy, calls worldwide attention to the importance of reading aloud and sharing stories. Carnesi, originally from Brazil, is one of several authors willing to participate via Skype visits with classrooms and libraries around the world.  The Children's Place contacted Carnesi as her award-winning picture book "Little Dog Lost: The True Story of a Brave Dog Named Baltic" was a good fit with "Paws for Reading," a weekly library program featuring Ben, a registered therapy dog, who listens to young readers.
Carnesi lived in Bowling Green in the 1990s while her husband was a graduate student at Bowling Green State University. She frequently used the library and is currently working as a public librarian in Pennsylvania.
"Little Dog Lost" is her debut picture book. "Sleepover with Beatrice & Bear" will be coming out this summer. For more information about Carnesi, see her website www.monicacarnesi.com. For more information about this program, contact the Children's Place at 419-352-8253.
