Congratulations Rita Lorraine Hubbard on your starred School Library Journal review for Hammering for Freedom!

SLJ said:

“Winner of the 13th Lee & Low New Voices Award, Hubbard tells the true story of William “Bill” Lewis, who was born into slavery and used his blacksmithing skills to buy his freedom—and, over time, the freedom of his entire extended family… A well-crafted picture book biography that belongs in every elementary nonfiction collection.”

Congratulations, Rita! To learn more about Rita and her books, including the forthcoming The Oldest Student (Schwartz & Wade, 2020), visit!

NB: Rita won the New Voices Award for this book before we began working together, but I certainly wish I had repped this gorgeous book, and I’m so lucky to be repping Rita now!
