Rebecca Leigh

Appearing Courtesy of Friends of the Festival

Before becoming a literacy professor, Rebecca Leigh taught high school English and French, which means finding texts that speak to adolescents – their lives, their feelings – matters to her. She is especially drawn to picture books with powerful storylines and evocative images, a niche genre for older readers who can grapple with such texts.
