A Regina Andrews' Children's Picture Book

I was recently awarded a Public Works grant from my institution, the University of Wisconsin's Center for the Humanities. The grant is funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and is designed to "support faculty who wish to rethink their research in order to reach a broader public." The workshop will bring together experts in children's books to review my manuscript and to offer feedback. The goal is to publish a children's book about Regina Andrews and to introduce her story to a whole new audience.
