Leila Esperanza, cocreator of Los Pirineos, the Mostly True Memoirs of Esperancita Gomez  and I are deeply honored to be panelists and exhibitors at Kweli Journal's First Annual Children's Book Writers Conference! We are both very excited to be in some truly amazing company!

‟Books transmit values. They explore our common humanity. What is the message when some children are not represented in those books?”


In a career spanning over 45 years, Walter Dean Myers wrote more than 100 books for children of all ages.  Join us at Poet's Den Theater in East Harlem, NY on Tuesday, September 30, 2014, 6-9PM as we prepare to honor his legacy with a conference that celebrates diversity in storytelling.

The Kweli Journal fall conference is an excellent opportunity to learn, get inspired and network with others in the industry. The evening will include author readings, a panel discussion, one-on-one pitch sessions and a reception.  For more information and to register please visit :
