Book Fair Speaker
We are excited that local author Lisa Moore Ramee will be joining us for our annual book fair this November. Please consider reading her book, A Good Kind of Trouble, about Shayla navigating middle school friendship situations, exploring her identity as a black girl who is seen by some as “not black enough” and becoming involved in the Black Lives Matter movement
