Believe In Wonder had the wonderful honor of being selected reader at the Writers of Color Spring Showcase, hosted by Reema Zaman and hosted by Literary Arts along with Ooligan Press! This is the second installment of this series, which is intended to evolve beyond an annual event and promote a larger, more holistic conversation and tangible results for diversity in book publishing. The work we presented was Josie Parker's picture book masterpiece, OBI THE CHANGELING, and the book was well received. The enthusiasm and talent of the writers present was inspiring, and it was great to get a chance to mix and mingle with our literary peers.
Another great day with another great group of young people. I feel really blessed to have the opportunity to talk about creativity and storytelling with students.
Thanks everybody that came by Cosmic Monkey Comics for Free Comic Book Day! I was there in the afternoon, representing Believe In Wonder Publishing, and had a chance to hang out with some awesome folks. As special thanks to Sean Fishback, editor and educator extraordinaire, for tabling with me. :) Fun times!
