Bindy Fleischman has been an active member of the U.S. Board on Books for Young People since 2002, serving on multiple committees now representing Massachusetts as our state Ambassador. She is a children’s librarian and museum educator, and is currently a member of the English Language Arts team at the German International School of Boston.
Nancy Traversy is the Co-founder of Barefoot Books, a children’s book publishing company celebrating diversity and imagination. Nancy has always been an avid explorer of world cultures, moving from Toronto to London in 1985 where she worked for many years in the London design industry before starting Barefoot Books from her home in North London with Tessa Strickland. In 2001, Nancy crossed the Atlantic to Concord, MA where she could be closer to her North American business. For Nancy, living Barefoot is creating beautiful, magical and authentic stories and art and bringing these to a grassroots, global community of people who care about how our next generation of children is raised.
