Game Changer Cover Reveal!

We know spring's only just begun, but let's talk about fall! We have an amazing list next season that features seven young adult novels, a multitude of picture books, fascinating nonfiction titles, and a graphic novel about Matthew Henson thrown in for good measure.

Today, we're excited to reveal the cover for Game Changer: John McLendon and the Secret Game, written by John Coy and illustrated by Randy DuBurke. The picture book tells the story of a game played in the 1940s that foreshadowed the future of basketball.

In 1944, Coach John McLendon orchestrated a secret basketball game between the best players from a white college and his team from a black college. At a time of widespread segregation and rampant racism, this illegal gathering changed basketball forever.

Without further ado...

Available 10/2015
