Turning The Page "Community Nights" at DC Public School Engages Families

"Turning The Page" invited me to engage with families and teachers at an elementary school in SW D.C. as part of their “Community Nights” series that give families a chance to meet an author or illustrator, learn about their writing and art process, and discover what inspired the book. I read to an audience of children, teachers, parents and other family members. Each child walked away that evening with a signed copy of my book, Grandma's Purple Flowers, compliments of TTP. Turning the Page is a non-profit organization that supports DC public schools in Ward 8 to increase their capacity to engage families in their children’s education.
