Biographical and Professional Information

When Sandra Belton grew up in what was then a segregated Beckley, she and her friends packed the library on Saturdays because it was one of the few places black kids were treated equal to whites. Much as she loved the library, she missed seeing books about black kids books she now writes to solid national reviews.
