Summary
"The fourth edition of this renowned reference work illuminates African American contributions to the genre of books for children and young adults with the biographies of 230 authors and artists - with the addition of more than 100 new biographies not included in previous editions. The book presents the reader with a rich source of accessible, in-depth biographical data on each individual author or artist, including birthplace, education, their approach to art or literature, career development, and awards and honors received. Nearly 200 photographs of the subjects bring their biographies to life and 48 covers of important children's books are reproduced. Also included are a comprehensive index of books, an index of authors and illustrators, and a useful listing of publishers, distributors, bookstores, and authors' e-mail and Web site addresses."-- back cover
