Jan Spivey Gilchrist's story is jaw dropping, with many riveting components of overcoming and great achievement. The most compelling part of Jan's story is her love for children and how love is at the core of her art, and the impression she and her art leave on their beholders. Her story crosses paths with many literary giants such as Eloise Greenfield, whom she collaborated on 29 books, the great Ashley Bryan, and the first African American Pulitzer Prize winner, Gwendolyn Brooks.
