This title about one of the most important and controversial artists of the 20th century is aimed at young teenagers. "Runaway Girl" provides an intimate look at the life and work of sculptor Louise Bourgeois (born 1911). Known for her graphic, sometimes disturbing, yet always personal artworks, Bourgeois broke down barriers for women in the male-dominated art world as she struggled to make sense of her own troubled past. Family photographs and reproductions of Bourgeois's work - from "Deconstruction of Father" to "Maman" - are interspersed with exclusive interviews, selections from the artist's journals and clear text.
