Thanks Ayanna! I was blown away by how many people attended. My entire goal is to inspire and train as many underrepresented authors as possible because it truly makes a difference for us to tell our own stories. ❤️

Today in the library: tiny kindergartener picked up a copy of Big Hair, Don't Care by @CSwainBates, pointed to the girl on the cover, then herself. Said w/ such delight: "Look, her skin matches my skin!" Imagine NOT seeing yourself in books. #WeNeedDiverseBooks #MirrorsWindows
