Runaway Girl: The Artist Louise Bourgeois

by Jan Greenberg and Sandra Jordan

Published by Abrams, 2003
80 pages
ISBN: 0-8109-4237-2

Ages 13 and older

Louise Bourgeios is a living artist whose complex sculptures and installations represent aspects of her life in ways that are often surprisingly direct or shockingly eye-opening. Authors Jan Greenberg and Sandra Jordan excel at making both art and artists' lives accessible, understandable, and exciting for older children and teens. And from its compelling title on, this volume lives up to their fine previous works. In their usual direct, uncomplicated manner, Greenberg and Jordan reveal their subject's life and work in a way that underscores the connection of one to the other. They interviewed Bourgeois as part of their research, enabling them to enrich their own and readers' understanding of her with personal observation. CCBC Categories: Biography and Autobiography.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
