Nadine is a Haitian-American poet, author, editor, and translator of works for adults and children. At Harvard, child psychiatrist and author Robert Coles inspired her to design an independent major in Literature and Social Criticism. She followed with a master’s in English and French Literature from Oxford University, where she was a Rhodes scholar, and went on to earn a PhD in Philosophy of Education from Indiana University. Her most recent children’s books, Women in Film and Sexism and Race, were selected by the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators for their Recommended Reading List. Nadine relishes exploring boundaries of genre and geography. She now lives with her husband and their two Hoosier cats on Belgium’s linguistic border, within sight of a primeval beech forest.
