“Dovey Johnson Roundtree set a new path for women and proved that the vision and perseverance of a single individual can turn the tides of history.”—Michelle Obama
Katie-McCabe is the co-author of two inspiring new books about the life of civil rights trailblazer Dovey Johnson Roundtree: We Wait for the Sun (a new picture book stunningly illustrated by Raissa Figueroa) and Mighty Justice (Young Readers’ Edition), adapted by Jabari Asim, from Dovey’s memoir for adults.
In a letter to educators and librarians, Katie McCabe shares why Dovey Johnson Roundtree’s story is so important to share with young readers as we teach them about the fight for civil rights and racial equality.

Dita Kraus grew up in Prague in an intellectual, middle-class Jewish family. Taken, along with her mother and father, from the Terezín ghetto in Prague, fourteen-year-old Dita was one of the many imprisoned by the Nazis at Auschwitz. There, she met Jewish leader Freddy Hirsch, who put Dita in charge of protecting eight precious volumes that prisoners managed to sneak past the guards. And so, Dita became known as the Librarian of Auschwitz.
Dita shares her remarkable life story in her breathtaking new memoir for teens and adults, A DELAYED LIFE. Dita’s incredible story was also fictionalized in the outstanding young adult novel, THE LIBRARIAN OF AUSCHWITZ.
