About the Author

Francie Latour is a writer and educator whose work explores issues of race, culture and identity. She was a staff reporter for the Boston Globe for ten years, and her essays have been featured on National Public Radio, the Today show, The Root and Essence. This is her first picture book.

Francie was born in the US to Haitian parents and traveled to Haiti often as a young girl. She was inspired to write Auntie Luce by a chance encounter in 1992 with the late Luce Turnier -- one of Haiti's most celebrated female artists -- who painted Francie's portrait.

Ken Daley was born in Canada to parents who emigrated from Dominica, and his illustrations for this book are inspired by his African Caribbean roots. Ken has also illustrated Joseph's Big Ride by Terry Farish, an Ontario Library Association Best Bet. He has exhibited his art in Canada, the United States and the Caribbean, and his work can be found in numerous private collections.
