Jordan Rodgers isn't really sure how, as a college-age person, she ended up illustrating a couple of books - or illustrating for the UMD Medical School.

But the student at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, who is biracial (Lakota and Black), has been amazed at the reach of Grasshopper Girl and Rez Dog.

And she knows, better than most, what it is not to see yourself reflected back at you from the pages of books.
