Shauntay Grant is an acclaimed poet and author of several picture books, including Sandy Toes, One Day, When I Wrap My Hair, and My Fade Is Fresh, which earned a starred review in Publishers Weekly. Her picture book Africville won the 2019 Marilyn Baillie Picture Book Award and was a finalist for the 2018 Governor General’s Literary Awards, the 2019 Ruth and Sylvia Schwartz Children’s Book Awards, and the 2019 Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia Masterworks Arts Award.

Candice Bradley was born in the San Francisco Bay area. Her fondest childhood memories are of drawing and dancing to Disney classics. She dreamed of either becoming a ballerina at Juilliard or an animator at CalArts. Although circumstances would prevent her from pursuing either, she didn’t stop there. To fund her own education, she decided to offer services as an illustrator, and thus began her journey as a picture book artist. Bradley’s hope as an illustrator is to support the movement of writers redeeming the narrative for minorities and people of color. Her books include Sandy Toes: A Summer Adventure. She lives in Atlanta, Georgia, with her family.
