OUT NOW: with starred reviews from Booklist and School Library Journal! THE SUN DOES SHINE: An Innocent Man, A Wrongful Conviction, and the Long Path to Justice (Young Readers Edition), with Anthony Ray Hinton and Lara Love Hardin. It was an incredible honour to work on the adaptation of this memoir by Anthony Ray Hinton and Lara Love Hardin. Mr. Hinton spoke about his message to young people on CBS THIS MORNING, and we both shared on the adaptation process with Betsy Bird at School Library Journal.
