The Author

David Bruce Smith is the author of 12 books, and founder of the Grateful American™ Foundation, which is restoring enthusiasm about American history–for kids and adults–through videos, podcasts, and interactive activities.

The Grateful American™ Book Prize promotes excellence in adolescent historical fiction and non-fiction that is focused on the United States since the country’s founding.

In 2019 he launched The Grateful American Book Series; a series of children’s books about historical couples that were–in actuality–partnerships.
