  1. How nice to see one former and two current honorees of the Children’s Africana Book Award program on your list of books that inspire kids! Please mark your calendar & spread the word that the illustrator of Emmanuel’s Dream, Sean Qualls, and 2, possibly 3, of authors & illustrator team behind One Plastic Bag will be in DC October 6-8, 2016. Awards dinner will be Friday Oct 7 at Busboys & Poets ($40) and free celebration of all 9 CABA winners for 2016 will be Saturday 11-2 at the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art.

    Let me know if you can join us!

    School visits for CABA authors and illustrators are arranged via the Open Book Foundation. If your school doesn’t meet their criteria, other arrangements can be discussed.
