A Portrait in Poems: The Storied Life of Gertrude Stein & Alice B. Toklas

By: Evie Robillard

Illustrator: Rachel Katstaller

Here's an insider's tour of the fascinating lives of Gertrude Stein and her partner, Alice B. Toklas, amusingly addressed directly to the reader ("The next time you go to…"). It explores the couple's art collection, their famous writer and artist friends, and even their dog, Basket. It also describes how Gertrude's book The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas was not about Alice, but was more about Gertrude herself! A celebration of creativity and the creative process, this original and very readable picture book biography champions two women who dared to live unconventional lives.

Time line. Sources. Author’s note. Full-color illustrations rendered in gouache, colored pencils, and graphite.
