About the Author
Leslie Rivver grew up in the Deep Alabama South. She ventured up the east coast for college and graduate school, spent close to a decade teaching children on the Arctic shores of Alaska, and now lives on a wild and cold mountain in Vermont.
"Leslie Rivver's Blackberries and Cream is the deeply moving story of a special friendship between a wise and loving black woman named Ida Bell and a young white girl named Gracie from a prominent but troubled family. Set in a small town in Alabama in the 1960s, this powerful coming-of-age story for middle-grade children deals honestly and lovingly with issues ranging from the Civil Rights Movement to death, and family dysfunction to our purpose in the world." -- Howard Frank Mosher, author of Stranger in the Kingdom
