I’m thrilled to announce today that another debut author has found a wonderful home: Laurie Thompson, non-fiction author extraordinaire, has just sold her first picture book to Anne Schwartz at Schwartz & Wade!
Laurie first became interested in this story after seeing Yeboah on the Oprah Winfrey Show in 2005, where he was promoting his documentary film Emmanuel’s Gift, which Winfrey narrated. (Oprah said of the documentary, “I think every parent should go take their children to see this movie because it will change the way your children think about what they can do and can be.”) I, for one, can’t wait to see the experiences of this amazing man brought to life on the page. All you readers out there have a treat in store for you, for sure!
