November Events

I finally wrapped my second book, A PLACE WHERE HURRICANES HAPPEN by Renee Watson. It debuts this June with Random House. In the meantime, I will be making three appearances in November.

On November 12th, the Cleveland Public Library is graciously hosting an exhibition of the original artwork for OUR CHILDREN CAN SOAR, which was published with BloomsburyUSA. They have invited me to be a part of the opening exhibition and to talk about my work. If you’re in Cleveland, please come by!


On November 21, I will be at the Brooklyn Museum’s Children’s Book Fair with Zetta Elliott signing copies of BIRD and OUR CHILDREN CAN SOAR
