Congrats to Freedom in Congo Square!
As 2016 comes to a close, we are excited to announce Freedom in Congo Square‘s great success among children and adults alike, and the numerous awards the book has received since its publication in January.
Readers of all ages can appreciate Mr. Christie’s beautiful illustrations and the inspiring tale of freedom of expression amidst injustice.
Maria Russo, children’s book editor for The New York Times Book Review, says, “Christie’s art is, as always, breathtaking, uniting folk art and sleek modern gestures with a graceful dynamism that calls to mind Jacob Lawrence and Benny Andrews.”
