Author Biography

MARGY BURNS KNIGHT received the National Education Association's Author-Illustrator Human & Civil Rights Award for her work with Anne Sibley O'Brien and the Children's Africana Book Award for Africa Is Not a Country. She is the author of Talking Walls, which has sold more than 200,000 copies. She writes a blog, "Discover Your World," and is a Service Learning Coordinator, an English teacher, and a Peace Corps veteran. ANNE SIBLEY O'BRIEN has illustrated 31 books, including Talking Walls, and is the author and illustrator of the picture book I'm New Here and the graphic novel The Legend of Hong Kil Dong. Annie's passion for multiracial, multicultural, and global subjects grew out of her experience of being raised bilingual and bicultural in South Korea as the daughter of medical missionaries. She writes the column "The Illustrator's Perspective" for the Bulletin of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators and a blog, "Coloring Between the Lines." The mother of two grown children, she lives with her husband on an island in Maine.
