In this episode, meet picture book writer Tameka Fryer Brown, author of Brown Baby Lullaby (Farrar, Straus & Giroux), named by Parents Latina Magazine as one of the Best Latino Children’s Books of 2020 and one of NPR’s 100 Favorite Books for Young Readers.

 

Laura and Tameka talk about using rhythm and rhyme to pen stories for picture book readers that celebrate family and community, and how Tameka’s books showcase diversity in a way that is accessible and relatable to any reader.

 

Tameka also talks about her upcoming picture books That Flag, about a pair of friends divided over the meaning and significance of the Confederate Flag, and Shirley Chisholm: Not Done Yet, a picture book biography in free verse. .

 

Tameka is definitely an author to watch – and you’ll get a great chance to meet her on the Social!
