GivingTuesday is where people around the world to come together through generosity to support communities and causes. You can read more about it by going here. The Black Caucus of the American Library Association (BCALA) is supporting this by way of a READ-A-THON. A select group of authors to include my daughter Haelee and myself will be reading excerpts from our books on November 30, 2021 from 1 - 9 PM EST. I’ll be specifically reading from my upcoming children’s book, Dear Daughter: A Love Story. Haelee is undecided about which book she’ll read from at the moment.
Moving along, BCALA is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is dedicated to supporting black information professionals throughout the world. Haelee and I are proud author members through the sponsorship of Richard E. Ashby Jr, Mr. Ashby is the Director of the Sto-Rox Public Library, Co-Founder and Director of LiteracyNation, Vice President of the Pennsylvania Black Librarians Caucus and former President of the Black Caucus of the American Library Association (BCALA). We would like to thank him for choosing us to become members of the BCALA Family. We would also like to thank BCALA for affording us the opportunity to get on stage and read our books. And finally we would like to thank Dr. Vanessa Raynor and Keisha Christian for sponsoring us for the event. If you would like to join in in sponsoring us or make a donation you can do so by going here. In doing so, please know that all contributions are tax deductible.
And if nothing else, we hope to see you at the BCALA Read-A-Thon on November 30, 2021. You can attend the Read-A-Thon by registering with your name and email address here. A email invite with instructions will be sent to you thereafter. Happy Giving Tuesday!!!
