Join me on June 12 at noon for a Creative Conversation with authors Caroline Brewer and Leslie C. Youngblood.
We'll discuss the growing popularity of narratives for young people that focus on the lives of Black children. These books are winning major literary awards and topping the bestseller lists. We'll discuss why.
