In Her Hands

By The Happy Nappy Bookseller

On the back of the book there is a lovely quote by Augusta Savage: ‘From the time I can first recall the rain falling on the red clay in Florida. I wanted to make things. When my brothers and sisters were making mud pies, I would be making ducks and chickens with the mud.’ After reading that I thought, this is an artist I would like to get to know. . . . [W]ill make young readers aware of Augusta Savage, a not so well known talented artist and the Harlem Renaissance. It’s also a good introduction to the art of sculpting.
