Nadia L. Hohn is an award-winning author of several books for young people, including the Malaika series, Harriet Tubman: Freedom Fighter and A Likkle Miss Lou: How Jamaican Poet Louise Bennett Coverley Found Her Voice. She is an “artivist” who advocates for diversity in children’s and young adult literature. Nadia shares two titles with us this year: a picture book, Malaika, Carnival Queen, and a middle grade non-fiction anthology, Anti-Racist Kitchen.

Nadia’s writing is inspired by her childhood memories, Jamaican heritage, Black culture, world travels, and social issues.
