Elizabeth Spires has written seven children's books and seven collections of poetry for adults. Her new children’s book, Kate’s Light, tells the true story of Kate Walker, the renowned keeper of Robbins Reef Lighthouse in New York Harbor. Kate’s Light is illustrated by Emily Arnold McCully, a Caldecott Medal winner. Kirkus Reviews said this about Kate’s Light: “Kate comes alive through the combined talents of Spires and McCully, and their portrayal highlights how an ordinary woman can excel and pave the way for others by virtue of her dedication and fortitude.”
