About the Author

FRANCIE LATOUR is a prize-winning writer whose work explores issues of race, culture and identity. Her work has been featured on National Public Radio and the Today show, as well as in The Root, Essence and the Boston Globe. Her writing was also anthologized in The Butterfly's Way, edited by Edwidge Danticat. Francie is co-founder of Wee The People, a social justice project for kids. This is her first picture book. A mother of three, Francie was born to Haitian parents. She was inspired to write Auntie Luce by a chance encounter in 1992 with the late artist Luce Turnier -- one of Haiti's most celebrated female artists -- who painted Francie's portrait. Francie and her family live in Boston.
