About the Author

Alan Schroeder is the author of several acclaimed picture books that capture the early lives of notable African Americans. His work has appeared on ALA Notable booklists and has been honored among TIME magazine's Best Children's Books of the Year. Schroeder lives in Alameda, California.

JaeMe Bereal is a fine artist and sculptor who, like Augusta Savage, discovered her passion at a young age. But unlike Savage, Bereal comes from a long line of supportive artists, including both of her parents. When she isn't painting or sculpting, Bereal enjoys yoga and dance. She lives in Berkeley, California, and can be found on the Web at jaemebereal.com. This is her first picture book.

Reviews

"This is a worthy effort that celebrates the determination of a young woman whose contributions should be remembered." -- School Library Journal

"A compelling children's biography of Harlem Renaissance sculptor Augusta Savage, gracefully unfolded by Alan Schroder and richly imaged in realistic paintings by JaeMe Bereal. . . . Should be an inspiration to young artists today." -- Midwest Book Review
