2018 Regina Medal Award Winner - Andrea Davis Pinkney and Brian Pinkney

12/1/2017

Andrea Davis Pinkney and Brian Pinkney are a New York Times bestselling and award-winning couple who have made outstanding contributions to the field of children’s literature, both as individuals and as an author-artist team. Between them, they have published nearly 60 children’s books, a rich treasury of words and images reflecting a wide range of interests for children — experiences that are both specific and universal.

The couple has been named among the “25 Most Influential People in Our Children’s Lives” by Children’s Health magazine. They are the recipient of the Regina Medal for their outstanding contributions to children’s literature. The Pinkneys’ books have been awarded multiple Caldecott Honor Medals, Coretta Scott King Awards, and Boston Globe/Horn Book Honors. They are five-time nominees for the NAACP Image Awards, and have received many Jane Addams Children’s Literature Honor citations, as well as multiple Parenting Publications Gold Medals.

Their notable books include Martin Rising: Requiem for a King; Duke Ellington: The Piano Prince and His Orchestra; Hand in Hand: Ten Black Men Who Changed America; Boycott Blues: How Rosa Parks Inspired a Nation; Martin & Mahalia; Sojourner Truth’s Step-Stomp Stride; and Ella Fitzgerald.

Brian and Andrea speak in schools and at educational conferences nationwide about their work as children’s book creators. Each year they inspire more than 10,000 school children and educators with their presentations and workshops.

The Pinkneys live in Brooklyn, New York, with their two children.

Regina and her husband Andrew live on a homestead in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley with their children and far too many pets, where Regina edits fiction, writes comic books, teaches high school English part time, and tries to find time to write another novel. To the question, “How do you manage to get it all done?” Regina responds, “What makes you think I get it all done?”
