Ferguson author wins children's advocacy award

Ferguson author wins children's advocacy award


Tip of the pen to Carol Swartout Klein, of Ferguson, who won the first Jerry Paul Youth Advocacy Award from Neighborhood Houses, an organization that supports low-income children and families. 

Klein, award-winning author of the children’s book “Painting for Peace in Ferguson,” was lauded for her efforts to help area children. The book consists of a poem and photographs of the artwork that was created on boarded-up windows in Ferguson and St. Louis during the civil unrest in 2014.

The award was established earlier this year to honor the late Rev. Jerry Paul, a former board member and founder of Deaconess Foundation System.
