Published: Abrams Books for Young Readers - April 20th, 2021

Like Ben Shahn's art, Cynthia Levinson's writing centers around stories of people fighting injustice. Her moving book of Ben Shahn comes at a time when we all need stories of "Civil Rights Activists. Workers Demanding Fair Pay. Political Protestors. Advocates for peace." Turks' accompanying, Caldecott-worthy illustrations draw from Shahn's style, and capture the movement and dynamism of his impassioned life. The People's Painter is a masterful biography that will, as Cynthia writes, and I have found, "encourage readers to sketch anywhere, especially in the margins."
