Nikki Grimes will be the 2017 Karla Harry Visiting Author
This year’s residency will be the longest one yet—four full days—thanks to the continued growth of the Karla Harry Visiting Author Fund and the support of the Gordon Community Association
Grimes is the author of more than forty novels, picture books, biographies and poetry volumes, including Coretta Scott King Award winners Bronx Masquerade and Talking about Bessie, as well as multiple CSK honor winners. In 2017, she was honored with the American Library Association’s Laura Ingalls Wilder Award, intended to “honor an author or illustrator whose books have made a substantial and lasting contribution to literature for children.”
She will be available to sign books at the GCA Book Fair
on November 28th, 29th and 30th from 3:30-5pm.
