I got to meet the heroic, young change makers at Salem Hills Elementary last week. What an extraordinary night! Thank you to the awesome families and staff. You sure know how to celebrate literacy!
The day was packed with authors, families, educators, and book lovers. I was lucky to be among so many extraordinary people!
You've got to see this book! If you love resources that blast destructive beauty myths to smithereens Bad Hair Does Not Exist by Sulma V Arzu-Brown (Author) and Isidra Sabio (illustrator) is for you! Give children the opportunity to see the gorgeous diversity in our world. Read all about it! Buy it HERE!
Join me this Saturday at 8 pm to celebrate The Loft Literary Center's 40th birthday!!! Tickets are $10.

Explore Secret Identities (with Peter Pearson), create a Spontaneous Graphic Novella (with me), try some Creative Cures for Artistic Ailments and Paperback Tarot (with Stephanie Watson) and meet Destiny's Indecisive Tattoo Parlour (Kari Pearson).
