About the Author
Julie K. Rubini is the founder of Claire's Day, a children's book festival in honor of her late daughter. She is the author of Hidden Ohio, Missing Millie Benson: The Secret Case of the Nancy Drew Ghostwriter and Journalist, and Virginia Hamilton: America's Storyteller. But most of all, she cherishes her roles as wife to Brad and mother to daughter Kyle and son Ian.
"Julie Rubini has created a well-researched, empathetic, and thoughtful biography for young readers and their older allies. All the facts and chronologies are here, of course, but Virginia herself also shines through."--Arnold Adoff, Virginia Hamilton's husband
"[Hamilton's] life is presented in a way that will inspire young females to follow their dreams. Rubini interviewed Hamilton's husband and friends, and their accounts and memories are weaved throughout the pages....Children, teachers, public and school librarians, and parents alike will appreciate the stories of multiculturalism and diversity within the focal story."--Melissa Martion, Portsmouth Daily Times
"Virginia Hamilton: America's Storyteller is an inspiring, conscientiously researched, and clear-cut biography of America's most awarded author of children's literature....I loved the fact that Julie K. Rubini researched Virginia's life with the beautiful awareness that she was writing about someone whose story could arouse the dreams of aspiring young writers and artists who might think it is impossible to become larger than life because of their background, race, ethnic group, gender, or heritage."--Yolimari Garcia, Bookworms and Owls
