Samara Cole Doyon

Samara Cole Doyon is both a second-generation Haitian American and a deeply-rooted Mainer, with half of the roots of her family tree reaching generations deep into the soil of the Pine Tree State. She is a freelance writer, teacher, wife, and mother.

She was recently chosen by the Maine Humanities Council to be featured at this year's Library of Congress National Book Festival for her children's picture book, The Magnificent Homespun Brown.
