Park School Librarian and Newbery Award-winning Author Laura Amy Schlitz Publishes Ninth Children’s Book

0

Newbery Award-winning author and Park School librarian Laura Amy Schlitz publishes her ninth children’s book this month. Amber and Clay, available March 9, blends verse, prose, and illustrated archaeological “artifacts” in a tale that vividly transcends time.

Welcome to ancient Greece as only genius storyteller Laura Amy Schlitz can conjure it. In a warlike land of wind and sunlight, “ringed by a restless sea,” live Rhaskos and Melisto, spiritual twins with little in common beyond the violent and mysterious forces that dictate their lives. A Thracian slave in a Greek household, Rhaskos is as common as clay, a stable boy worth less than a donkey, much less a horse. Wrenched from his mother at a tender age, he nurtures in secret, aided by Socrates, his passions for art and philosophy. Melisto is a spoiled aristocrat, a girl as precious as amber but willful and wild. She’ll marry and be tamed—the curse of all highborn girls—but risk her life for a season first to serve Artemis, goddess of the hunt.
