Susan S Meyer

SUSAN LYNN MEYER is the author of Black Radishes and, its companion, Skating with the Statue of Liberty. Meyer grew up in the United States, where her father, along with his sister and mother, found refuge after escaping Nazi-occupied France in 1942. Both books were inspired by stories she heard growing up. Black Radishes was Susan's debut novel and is based on Meyer's father's years in Saint-Georges and his family's eventual escape to America. It won a Sydney Taylor Honor Award and was named a Massachusetts Book Award finalist and a Bank Street College of Education Best Book of the Year. She lives with her family in Massachusetts and teaches literature and creative writing at Wellesley College.
