Exploring the history of English literacy, and expanding on the simplified definition (“The ability to read and write.”) Nic explains how true literacy is about effective communication, and has the power to change an individual's life, while also creating a more equitable society.

Nic Stone was born and raised in a suburb of Atlanta, GA, and the only thing she loves more than an adventure is a good story about one. After graduating from Spelman College, she worked extensively in teen mentoring and lived in Israel for a few years before returning to the US to write full-time. Growing up with a wide range of cultures, religions, and backgrounds, Stone strives to bring these diverse voices and stories to her work.

You can find her goofing off and/or fangirling over her adorable little family on most social media platforms as @getnicced, or on her website:

Her titles include:

  • Dear Martin
  • Odd One Out
  • Jackpot
  • Clean Getaway
  • Dear Justyce

This program is made possible by an LSTA Public and School Library Collaborative Grant, funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
