Great new books to watch for:

Three Witches

In Joyce's newest adaptation of stories collected by Zora Neale Hurston, three witches tree two children and decide to eat them. As one reviewer points out, The Three Witches combines a triple-threat of talent: Joyce Carol Thomas, Zora Neale Hurston, and Faith Ringgold, who provides wonderful illustrations for the book. Folklore has never been so much fun. Available now!


Shouting! has been released by Hyperion/Disney. The publisher calls this book "A celebration of faith for all ages." Joyce says, "Shouting! is about the sacred dance (holy dance) that I watched in the church of my youth. Now we see the dance all over the world and enjoy it along with the burgeoning effect of Gospel music." Shouting! has been beautifully illustrated by Annie Lee.

Marked By Fire

2007 is the 25th anniversary of the publication of Marked By Fire. There will be a new hardcover edition of this National Book Award winner. More later!

After a very busy winter and spring traveling and speaking, Joyce is focusing on writing.She always has a great time meeting readers and sharing her love of writing and reading and will be out there again soon to meet you.
