Chelsea Clinton has written a new picture book, SHE PERSISTED. The book shares the life stories of 13 historical women, who persisted in the face of immeasurable odds. This is a meaningful book, which aims to give voice to anybody who ever was made to feel less than.
The book is illustrated by me, published by Philomel and will reach bookstores on May 30, 2017.
