Writer, Educator, Children's Literature Specialist
I'm thrilled to receive the generous support of the Associates of the Boston Public Library to work on my novel this year, as Writer-in-Residence at the Boston Public Library. See the announcement here.
Many thanks to all who attended the virtual reception, where I read from my manuscript. If you missed it, you can watch the recording here.
If you work with teens, consider reading Punching the Air with them this year. This stunning novel in verse by Ibi Zoboi and Yusef Salaam touches on issues and experiences at the heart of our country: race, incarceration, art, and healing. Head to the HarperCollins website to download the educator's guide I created for the book!
