After I received my physical copy from Hear Our Voices, I decided to give it to my youngest cousin (she just turned eight). She kept asking me questions like “Why is the bird so big? What’s rice and rocks? Is the boy going to eat rocks?” as soon as she saw the cover. I told her to read it and find out and so that’s what she did while I sat on the couch with her. She ended up enjoying the story and I’m pretty sure the bird was her favorite part.
Hey y’all! Welcome to my leg of the Hear Our Voice book tour for Loretta Little Looks Back by Andrea Davis Pinkney and Brian Pinkney. They’re a husband/wife duo that have worked on multiple books together and I have the opportunity to host an interview with them here. Check out what this pair had to say!
On Friday, April 5th, I got the opportunity to meet Elaine Welteroth and Brittany Packnett, Abby Wambach, and Glennon Doyle at the Be the Change event hosted at Florida Atlantic University. Elaine’s book More Than Enough will be out June 11, 2019 and it can be pre-ordered here. I do not have any affiliate links and this is not a sponsored post.
The first time I saw Elaine Welteroth was in my living room. I was watching an episode of Blackish where she was playing Zoey’s boss. This was long before my love affair with Grownish began. One of the things that struck out most to me was her hair. Watching a black woman in a position of power with her hair in its natural state, that meant a lot to my teenage self. Her appearance in Grownish brought about that same feeling. After hearing about her role in co-writing that episode, I knew I had to meet her for myself.
