“The books from which [children] learn must reflect movement and change and all of the infinite possibilities of minds at liberty.

Virginia Hamilton

“I call myself a wordkeeper, or a keeper of words. I enjoy words and looking at them on all sides… Words are magnificent… They form rhythms of living in meaningful prose… It is the force of my desire, my wish to make myself understood, that powers these words.”
Virginia Hamilton
