About the Author

Janet Luongo writes stories, creates art, and gives speeches and workshops. Raised Unitarian Universalist in New York City, she holds an MSEd from Queens College at CUNY and taught art from kindergarten to college. While teaching at the International School of Geneva over several years, she exhibited paintings in Geneva and Paris. In Connecticut, she taught communication at Sacred Heart University. As an art education curator in Bridgeport museums, her innovative programs garnered grants, awards and media attention for connecting urban and suburban children and developing leadership in underserved teens. Her book, 365 Daily Affirmation for Creativity, with a foreword by Jack Canfield and published in five countries, led to presentations in the US and as far as Xian, China. To make diverse feminist artists visible, she founded a non-profit, which mounted forty exhibits. She coproduced the movie Women Make Art, which was screened at the UNIFEM film festival. Currently, photography is her art. She resides with her husband, Jim, in Norwalk, Connecticut, and they enjoy hiking with their son and family in Colorado.


"Candid and wholehearted, Rebellion, 1967: A Memoir offers a
window into an era of turbulence and dramatic change, and keeps the
reader's attention riveted from cover to cover. Highly recommended!"

-Midwest Book Reviews

"It takes rare courage to be this
vulnerable, honest, and authentic in a memoir. With heart wide open,
Janet reveals herself as a girl whose path was driven by intellect,
curiosity, and a quest for justice. The history she weaves into her
personal story gives gravity to the book. A compelling story."

--Denise Page, writer, storyteller, diversity trainer, and vision engineer with F.U.N. (Fired Up Network)

"Now is the best time for this memoir to come out. Janet has an important message to deliver."

--Sonja Ahuja, Capacity Building and Training Partner, Co-Creating Effective and Inclusive Organizations (CEIO)
