Robert Coles first met Dorothy Day over 35 years ago when he worked in one of her Catholic Worker soup kitchens. He remained close to this inspiring and controversial woman until her death in 1980. His book confronts candidly the puzzles of her life: the Greenwich Village novelist and reporter who converted to Catholicism, the single mother who raised her child in a most unorthodox family, her devout religious conservatism coupled with her radical politics and more.
This biography introduces young readers to one of the most inspirational women of the twentieth century, a down-to-earth spiritual leader of great determination and equally great faith. Written by Maura D. Shaw and illustrated by Stephen Marchesi, it includes a list of important words to know, a timeline of important events in the life of Dorothy Day, and resources for parents and teachers.Skylight Paths
