This week I’m excited to welcome Jerry Craft to the podcast to discuss his latest book, New Kid.
Jerry Craft is an author and illustrator who has worked on numerous picture books, graphic novels, and middle grade novels. His latest book, New Kid, is a middle grade graphic novel that has earned four starred reviews, including one from Kirkus Reviews which called it “An engrossing, humorous, and vitally important graphic novel that should be required reading in every middle school in America.” Jerry has won five African American Literary Awards, is the creator of the award-winning comic strip Mama’s Boyz, and is co-founder and co-producer of the Schomburg’s Annual Black Comic Book Festival. Jerry was born in Harlem and grew up in nearby Washington Heights. He is a graduate of The Fieldston School and received his B.F.A. from the School of Visual Arts.
