Another timely author interview: During the internet’s thirtieth birthday month, NPR hosted the illustrator of a new kids' book about a computer pioneer.
A Computer Called Katherine, written by Suzanne Slade and illustrated by Veronica Miller Jamison, tells the story of NASA’s Katherine Johnson.
(Johnson and two other African-American women were recently immortalized in the movie Hidden Figures, in case that name is ringing a bell that you can’t place.)
Jamison gave Weekend Edition’s Scott Simon a glimpse into that collaborative creative process in a recent interview, which you can listen to below or read on NPR’s website.
