4-Star Fall Releases

19 Aug

Schomburg cover  in-your-hands cover

Schomburg: The Man Who Build a Library (Candlewick, August 2017), my  fifth collaboration with Eric Velasquez; and In Your Hands (Atheneum/Simon& Schuster), my first book with Brian Pinkney, have both earned four starred reviews. The stars came from Kirkus Reviews, School Library Journal, Booklist and Publishers Weekly. Both books reflect my mission of truth-telling. Reviewers, thanks for all the love.
