THIS MAKES ME SO HAPPY!!! Hilary van Dusen at Candlewick has bought world rights to Arturo Schomburg: The Man Who Built a Library, a collaboration of Carole Boston Weatherford and Eric Velasquez. The picture book explores Puertoriqueño Schomburg’s lifelong quest to collect and share the histories of great men and women of the African diaspora.
