The first story in Alice Faye’s Civil Rights Trilogy, MEMPHIS, MARTIN & THE MOUNTAINTOP, came out in 2018 from Calkins Creek to starred reviews and a Caldecott Honor for famed illustrator R. Gregory Christie. The second installment, illustrated by acclaimed illustrator Charly Palmer, picks up with the trial of Burton Dodson, and highlights the fight for voting rights by Black sharecroppers evicted from their tent city in Fayette County in the late 1950s.
An amazing story, told by a capable writer and brought to life by a talented illustrator, comes to bookstores in spring 2022!
I can’t wait!
Congratulations, Alice Faye.
