Author Debora G. de Farias discusses her debut historical novel, Standing Tall. It's the story of Cecilia Grierson, Argentina’s first female physician. Set against the progressive Golden Age, Standing Tall explores the vibrant culture and realities of life in South America, including the plight of immigrants, the fight for women’s rights, and the yearning to be part of the global pursuit of knowledge in science and art. Debora writes about little-known heroes in the hope that we may get to know them better.
