Jules Archer was one of the most respected names in nonfiction for young people. During his lifetime he published over seventy books, which have been translated into twelve languages throughout the world.
Brianna Dumont is author of the Changed History series, which makes history come alive by exposing its murky underbelly. The first book in the series, Famous Phonies: Legends, Fakes and Frauds Who Changed History, includes gems about “I-must-not-tell-a-lie” George Washington and school-less Shakespeare. Starting in June 2017, her National Geographic spin-off series Weird But True: Extra Credit will debut with U.S. Presidents. When she’s not writing quirky books, Brianna travels the world in search of great museums and historical sites. When she’s at home, she is a full-time writer and researcher who is quickly becoming best friends with her local librarian. She and her family live in Chicago, Illinois.
