Praise for Her Right Foot

“Heartfelt throughout and indisputably timely.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“I want to hold this book in one hand and a torch in the other and stand on an island someplace so everyone can see.” —Lemony Snicket

About Her Right Foot

In this fascinating, fun take on nonfiction, Dave Eggers and Shawn Harris investigate a seemingly small trait of America's most emblematic statue. What they find is about more than history, more than art. What they find in the Statue of Liberty's right foot is the powerful message of acceptance that is essential to an entire country's creation.
