We’re pleased to welcome Augusta as a Teaching Assistant for this course. Augusta grew up in a small town in Mississippi. She has since lived in North Carolina, Georgia, Maryland, Massachusetts, California, Rhode Island, New Jersey, and Florida—twice! However, if anybody asks where she’s from, Mississippi would be the answer. Augusta is a former school librarian. Glory Be is her debut novel. Her second middle-grade novel has just been purchased by Scholastic and is slated for publication in the fall of 2014.
