Emily Arnold McCully is known primarily as an artist. The illustrator of more than forty books for young readers, she received the Caldecott Medal for Mirette on the High Wire. She is also passionate about history, particularly on feminist subjects, and makes her YA debut with this biography. She divides her time between Chatham, New York, and New York City.
