Alice Faye Duncan

Watch out for reviews of Alice Faye Duncan’s new and upcoming non-fiction children’s picture books next week on RaiseThemRighteous.com! Duncan’s work makes important contributions to children’s non-fiction by exploring American literary and political history. Her lyrical language transports even the youngest readers into the past, which is rendered rich in details that take unapologetic account of poverty and racism as well as hope and resistance.
