Aura Lewis Reads GLORIA'S VOICE at Books Are Magic in Brooklyn
last updated 16 August 2018
A spread from Gloria’s Voice.
On a hot and sleepy Saturday morning at the end of July, Aura Lewis walked into Books Are Magic, the new, yet already beloved, independent bookstore in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn. Aura is the author and illustrator of picture book biography Gloria’s Voice, praised by Kirkus as “a subtle ode to an iconic figure of quiet strength and enormous influence,’” and she was at Books Are Magic to read Gloria’s story aloud to a packed house of young readers (and perhaps, future activists themselves!). She was joined by fellow author Anna Raff, as part of Back 2 Back, a series presented by The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrated that pairs newcomers to the industry with veterans.

Pink beanbags perfect for lounging and listening.
The book is available now wherever books are sold, (including at Books Are Magic!) but take a look at a few of the gorgeous spreads from the book below:
