Words & Pictures

Jonah Winter


“Pages and pages and pages with words all over the pages. My goodness, what fun. What fun to write whatever words occur.”

Jonah Winter, Gertrude is Gertrude is Gertrude is Gertrude

Jonah Winter is the award-winning author of more than 30 nonfiction picture books which promote social justice, facts, and artistic expression. His books include New York Times Best Illustrated Books Diego, Here Comes The Garbage Barge!, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg: The Case Of RBG Vs. Inequality, along with Jane Addams Children’s Book Award recipient and Kirkus Prize finalist, Lillian’s Right to Vote, New York Times Notable Children’s Book, My Name is James Madison Hemings, New York Times bestseller Barack, and The Secret Project, which received 5 starred reviews.

Born in Fort Worth, Texas, raised in Dallas, and a former resident of New York City, San Francisco, Idaho, Maine, and Virginia, Winter currently resides in a small town in Pennsylvania.

“Mr. Winter’s books leap off the shelf and make a dive for your jugular. They pop and smack and wrest your attention away from the glittery fiction pack.”

Elizabeth Bird, School Library Journal
