Nice SLJ Write-Up of Last Week’s Candlewick Preview

Lastly, we got a special treat: one of our own, Monica Edinger, Dalton School teacher and blogger atEducating Alice, spoke about her new book, Africa Is My Home. Telling the little-known story of the real-life children aboard Amistad, this labor of love was thirteen years in the making for Edinger. She uses primary source materials and archival images to drive the story home; accompanied by illustrations from Robert Byrd, this is an emotional and rich book. The room was so supportive of Edinger, and we all can’t wait for this one to come out in October.
