Susan Goldman Rubin, author of BROWN V. BOARD OF EDUCATION

One of our most honored and prolific writers of nonfiction for young readers, Susan Goldman Rubin moves easily from subject to subject: artists like Diego Rivera and Roy Lichtenstein, designers like Elsa Schiaparelli, historical events like the Holocaust and Freedom Summer. But this creative flow came at a price. In our conversation, Susan Rubin talks about her earlier life as a visual artist, and the dramatic event that pointed her on a new career as a writer. She also discusses her new book, Brown v. Board of Education: A Fight for Simple Justice.

Here’s our review of her Brown v. Board book. And here are all of Susan Rubin’s books currently in print.
