Meeting authors leads to exploring potential careers

We haven’t even started the After-School Academy yet, but we’re already engaging the kids in great experiences!

This past weekend, two of the kids were chosen to attend the Tulisoma South Dallas book fair. They met several authors, including Carole Boston Weatherford, who authors a number of great books you can find here and Derrick Barnes, who authors the Ruby and the Booker boys series.

The kids also participated in a class where they watched a puppet show that took them in a time machine over to Africa and then were allowed to play some of the African drums and other instruments.

Tulisoma is a free book fair event offered every year at this time. Plan to go with us next year!
