I’m excited for you to join us at the Fall for the Book Festival! I will be co-presenting “Teach Them Well & Let Them Lead: Writing Better Stories for Children.”
Children’s book authors, Maria Ribbing Cornell, author of The Boy and the Tree, Keosha Sath, author of Just Like You, Kiara Brown, author of Princess Pretend and the Not Knight, and Michael D. Gatson, author of Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep discuss writing modern day stories for younger audiences that are diverse or underrepresented. With characters navigating challenges from self-acceptance to immigration to PTSD, they explore inclusive and empowering messages that confront social constructs and destigmatize emotional struggles in a call for a more compassionate future.
