Here's a portrait of one of my favorite authors, Donna Tartt. Born and raised in Mississippi, she went on to write three superb novels, The Secret History, The Little Friend, and The Goldfinch.
Here's a portrait of Howard WW 2 veteran, Howard Zinn, who went on to become a professor, historian, and activist. His pivotal book, A People's History of the United States, told the story of America from the perspective of the powerless, as opposed to those in power. Prints of this piece are available here!
