In 2016, I interviewed Heather Lang about creating her #firstpicturebook QUEEN OF THE TRACK: ALICE COACHMAN, OLYMPIC HIGH-JUMP CHAMPION which was published in 2012. Since her debut, Heather has published four more books, presented at conferences and schools around the country, and, just this month, won the SCBWI Crystal Kite Award for her picture book FEARLESS FLYER illustrated by Raul Colon. Congrats Heather and Raul!!
