Vashti Harrison, LITTLE LEGENDS
Dec 3rd, 2019 by zibbyowens
Vashti Harrison is the exceptional children’s book author and illustrator of Little Leaders: Bold Women in Black History, Little Dreamers: Visionary Women Around the World, and most recently Little Legends: Exceptional Men in Black History, plus board books Dream Big, Little One, and Think Big, Little One. She has also illustrated many other books including Sulwe by Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o, which is now a New York Times best seller, Cece Loves Science, Hair Love, and others. I met Vashti at the Brooklyn Book Festival and watched her do an illustrator smackdown which my kids thought was basically the coolest thing ever. I'm super excited that I got to talk to Vashti about her work!
