Pub. Date:
As a young girl in 1890s Florida, Augusta Savage enjoyed nothing more than playing with clay. As she grew into a young woman, she wanted to pursue her career as an artist, but to do so she would have to leave behind everything she knew. Award-winning author Alan Schroeder deftly weaves together known historical details to create a compelling portrait of this unique Harlem Renaissance sculptor. Warm paintings capture Augusta Savage's struggles and resilience as she skilfully carves out her own special place in art history.
