This Saturday, May 14th, the Reginald F. Lewis Museum in Baltimore will be holding their 4th Annual African American Children’s Book Fair. This free book fair is open to anyone who wants to learn more about books by and for African Americans and people of other ethnicities, and every family will receive a free children’s book for as long as supplies last. Picture book illustrators Shadra Strickland (Sunday Shopping) and London Ladd (Frederick’s Journey) will be participating, and Shadra will be awarding the first annual Jack Ezra Keats Bookmaking Competition. The festival will be running from 12 to 4 pm, with London taking part in the Illustrator’s Painting Presentation at 2 pm and Shadra participating in the Quick Draw Contest at 2:20. If you’re in the Baltimore area, make sure to stop by! You can find more information about the book fair on the museum’s website here.
