About Anne Sibley O'Brien

Anne Sibley O'Brien lives and works on an island in Maine, two miles off the coast of the city of Portland. She was raised on the other side of the world in South Korea, an experience which became the catalyst for a lifelong passion for racial and cultural difference.

She has illustrated 31 books, including Jamaica's Find (still in print after 25 years) and 6 other Jamaica titles by Juanita Havill. She is also the author of 14 of those titles, including The Legend of Hong Kil Dong: The Robin Hood of Korea, which won the Aesop Prize and the Asian Pacific American Literature Award (APALA), and was a Booklist "Top 10 Graphic Novels for Youth;" and her most recent, A Path of Stars, which was the APALA Honor Picture Book and was named one of the NCSS/CBC Notable Social Studies Trade Books for Young People. She blogs on race, culture and children's books at "Coloring Between the Lines."
