About the Author
Kyra E. Hicks is a marketing professional and quilter. She was so mesmerized after seeing Eva Ungar Grudin's 1990 exhibition, "Stitching Memories: African-American Story Quilts," that she began to teach herself to create her own quilts. "I found my voice that afternoon in the museum," she remembers. Today, Kyra's quilts have been included in more than forty exhibitions in venues such as the American Craft Museum in New York, the Renwick Gallery in Washington, D.C., and the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum in Hartford. She hosts the African American quilting news blog, Black Threads.

The family moved from Tennessee to Liberia. Having the 14 year old read this to me, and him learning about slavery, made the book even more memorable. He was impressed with her desire to meet Queen Victoria, and presenting the beautiful quilt.
The illustrations are wonderful, and we enjoyed looking at the quilt. Kyra Hicks has down a wonderful job with this story. We both enjoyed it!!
I received a copy of this book from the author, and was not required to give a positive review.
Kyra Hicks' quiet heroism is evident in her brilliant research of a little-known American character that she brings to light in this adventure story. Fodi's illustrations vividly capture the dignity and inspiration of this tale and are the "icing on the cake" of this tiny literary feast.
Destined to be a classic, Martha Ann's Quilt for Queen Victoria is must-have reading for future heroes of all ages.
