Sewing Stories : Harriet Powers' Journey from Slave to Artist
She first began exhibiting her quilts at a cotton fair in Georgia and though she never traveled outside of Georgia, her surviving quilts are now priceless examples of African-American folk art. Of the two quilts that are known to have survived, one hangs in the Smithsonian and the other in the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Barbara Herkert's musical narrative and Vanessa Newton's eye-catching illustrations bring this important artist to life in this moving picture book biography.
