Cover Reveal for Because Claudette written by Tracey Baptise and Illustrated by Tonya Engel.

"From NYT bestselling author Tracey Baptiste comes a singular picture book that is both a biography about Claudette Colvin, the teen whose activism launched the Montgomery bus boycott, and a celebration of collective action." Because Claudette is expected in January 2022.

About the illustrator: Tonya Engel is an artist who has had studios in New York, Paris, Austin and Houston, where she lives now. Figurative and full of symbolism, her work is influenced by both folk artists of the Deep South and contemporary masters like Frida Kahlo and Marc Chagall.
