Antonia Felix, Ed.D., is the New York Times bestselling author of twenty-four nonfiction books, short fiction,
a novel, and drama. She also consults on and writes about racial equity in education.
ACCLAIM FOR THE WARREN BIOGRAPHY
“Felix's story of a woman who broke barriers to become an effective national leader in the fight for fairness provides a powerful antidote to defeatism as an example of what can be accomplished if, as Sen. McConnell complained about Elizabeth, we ’persist.’”
“If you wonder why Elizabeth Warren is profound yet always understandable, tough-minded yet soft-hearted, able to bring real life to Washington—and vice versa—read her life story by Antonia Felix. It will not only show us what a leader can be, but who we can become.”
e-book & audio
“Compelling, important, and relevant to the present and future of America.”
"Felix is an excellent writer. . . . [She] definitely understands the appeal that Warren has to working-class progressives.”

"Provides tools and reflection for all leaders in education to begin to become true agents of change in our schools and more importantly come to grips with their own biases so that we see more commonalities. This book will allow us to lean into discomfort and become more human."
—Elizabeth Alvarez, Chief of Schools, Chicago Public Schools
"At this critical juncture in which the deleterious impact of race is so profoundly apparent in our schools, Krull, Raskin and Felix have provided us with an epistemological tour de force. Research, evidence, strategies and practices have been blended into a vital metanarrative from which leaders can mindfully inspire and instill in staff the racial consciousness needed to confidently enable students of color to demonstrate their innate propensity for high intellectual performances, self-determination and personal agency."
—Yvette Jackson, Adjunct Professor, Teachers College, Columbia University
